Posted January 18, 2019 09:03:00In the Mediterranean region, the continent has one of the worlds fastest-growing economies.
The region is also the world leader in population growth and the top producer of goods and services, accounting for nearly three-quarters of global output.
In the past, the region has been able to absorb large and growing populations in countries like Spain, Italy, Greece and Spain.
But now, its population is declining at a faster rate than in other regions.
The region’s population growth rate has been below the rest of the continent since 2016, when the number of births hit 1.65 million, the European Commission said in a report on Thursday.
This has led to a population contraction of more than 1.5 million people per year since 2016.
In 2018, the number fell to 1.4 million.
The EU’s population figures for 2019 are not yet available.
This trend is due to the EU’s policy of “demographic transition” – moving its population away from countries like Germany, the Netherlands, and France and into countries like Portugal, Italy and Spain, where the economy has become more dependent on the services industry and services such as tourism and finance.
Since the 1990s, the EU has gradually moved its population towards its core areas, including eastern Europe and the Balkans.
The current demographic shift has been taking place at the same time as countries have been experiencing a significant population increase, the commission said.
The report, which also examined the EUs economic performance, said that the EU countries’ average per capita GDP per capita in 2019 was 9.1 percent lower than it was in 2016.
The EU’s per capita income fell by 3.4 percent in 2019, which is a major blow to the European Union as the bloc is struggling to cope with its own demographic decline.
The European Commission has set a goal of having a population of 5.5 billion people by 2030.
