||Excerpts from Malaysia's country statement at the 50th session of the Commission on Population and Development 3-7 April 2017, New York.
||Malaysia's demographic changes in structure, size and spatial distribution of families and household. These changes have created both opportunities and challenges for the Government in prescribing policies and designing initiatives to further foster the well-being as well as ensure sustainable development of current and future generations. Malaysia's population is projected to increase from 31.9 million in 2016 to 41.5 million in 2040. While the overall population of the country is projected to increase, the annual population growth rate is expected to decrease from 1.8 percent in 2010 to 0.8 percent in 2040.
