The worlds population will grow to well over 9 billion by 2050 but Japan's is to drop by staggering 16 million in the same period. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) predicted in its annual report. Japan is the 10th most populated nation which is similar to several of its Asian neighbors such as China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. But its negative population trend matches those in the West, particularly European nations. A growing population and in Europe and North America in particular, combined with a shortage of nurses and doctors are driving up demand for health workers and causing an influx of skilled female migrants from poor countries, was written in The Japan Times the 7th of September.An open and tolerant world where countries with shortage of people allow immigrants from countries with an overpopulation to work is that the world need.People need to look at the advantages and freedom that globalization and free-market world can offer. That is pretty much the only thing that can solve this future problem as far as things are now.So, start learning Japanese, because there will be plenty of jobs here in the future.
