European country Greece announces a bonus of 2,000 euros to parents on childbirth to increase population.
The announcement by the Greek government was due to a population decline, where it is estimated that by 2050, 36% of Greece’s population will be over 65 years old.
In Greece, the birth rate of children per thousand was 8.5% in 2016, while the mortality rate for a thousand people was 11.2 percent.
The Greek government has begun encouraging the people to increase the population, and a married couple will be given a bonus of 2,000 euros ( 3,36,000 Pakistani rupees) per child birth.
The Greek government has also allocated a large sum of money for the campaign, while the offer is valid for Europeans living in Greece and for other countries nationals also.
