World Population Day

A mother carries her child at the Burgos Market in Marikina as people do their business on World Population Day. The country’s population is likely to reach 109 million by the end of the year according to the Commission on Population while the workforce is expected to reach 70 million, which may become a challenge to the government’s efforts in job creation and economic opportunities.
