The final results of the Census will be announced on March 30 at an event in the Philharmonic Hall, said the director of the State Statistical Office Apostol Simovski.
“Every citizen had the right to register as they wish during the census. It is an illusion to expect population growth when there is an increase in emigration,” says Simovski in an interview with the “Studio 10” show on TV24.
According to Simovski, the demographic strategy 16 years ago was very wrong.
“Young people who carry the birth rate leave the country. We need another type of policy. And when the best measures are taken, a demographic boom cannot be expected. Each of us should have the opportunity for quality work, the second factor – the opportunity for quality education, we need quality health and good communication and fifth, human needs to have the opportunity to be met everywhere. The problem is with the migration on an internal level,” points out Simovski.
