Japan faces dramatic population decline

Japan’s population will shrink by a staggering 30% by 2060, according to a new estimate by the country’s government, CNN reported. The current population will shrink from the current level of 128 million to 86.74 million, as the graying nation’s aging accelerates and the birthrate continues to stay low. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s research organization released the data on Monday.
