The parliamentary Education Committee, discussing demographic challenges in Slovenia and the EU, agreed that demographic change should be taken very seriously.
Officials called for efficient population planning and higher birth rates at the session initiated by Matjaž Gams from the National Council, the upper chamber of parliament. He said in Slovenia around 10,000 more children should be born a year. It would take 200 years for the entire population to be replaced by new generations.
