Experts Make Huge Revisions to Beijing Population Projections

(Beijing) – The population of Beijing is expected to hit 26 million by 2020, according to a report recently released by the Beijing Academy of Social Sciences. Experts have made drastic adjustments to population projections for the country's capital city after target limits were shattered with the results of China's sixth national census.

Beijing's population is currently over 19 million, according to recent census results. The official population limit set by city authorities stands at 18 million by 2020. Beijing authorities responded to the census results in a press release saying planning revisions would be made in 2013.
