The booklet tackled the population file as one of the most important topics. The number of population hit 105.3 million now against 104,462 million in January 2023, thus marking a significant rise.
The booklet expounded that this means that the number of population upped by 10 million in less than seven years according to the 2017 statistics.
The economic growth rates should be at least triple the population growth rate in order to maintain the standard of living and ensure the returns of development.
