100 million by 2050

At the present growth rate of 1.32%, Vietnam's population is projected to rise from 82 million today to 100 million in 2050, with one million new people a year, while its land cultivation is decreasing. The government will step up campaigns over the next two years for population socialization, reproductive healthcare and poverty reduction. The average life expectancy has now reached over 71.
