How to get more Greeks in Greece
Population and demographics data from the U.S. Census Bureau and World Bank show that in 2017, Greece’s population reached a high of 6.6 million, a decline of 2.9 million since 2010, according to a new analysis by the International Monetary Fund.
The U.K. is the most populous country in Europe with a population of 5.3 million.
But its population dropped by 0.6 percent to 4.1 million.
Greece’s current population of about 4.7 million is roughly the same as that of Portugal, according the United Nations Population Division.
But the two countries are more closely tied in terms of population size, with the former having a population about 1.8 million, Portugal about 1 million, and the former a little more than 800,000.
The EU is a little less closely tied with a 2.4 million population, while Spain, Italy and Greece are about half that size.
The two countries also share a lot of common territory, with Greece’s territory extending from the Aegean Sea to the Black Sea and Spain’s stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to Italy’s Adriatic Sea.
In terms of its economic development, Greece has been an important beneficiary of EU membership in recent years, receiving billions of euros of loans from the European Union in exchange for fiscal austerity measures.
But with its population shrinking, its economy is struggling to recover.
Greece also has an aging population, with about 40 percent of its people between the ages of 65 and 74.
The number of people under age 60 in Greece increased by 3.5 percent between 2009 and 2017, according a report by the European Commission.
The IMF says that Greece’s economic prospects are also declining.
Its economy contracted by 3 percent in the second quarter of 2017.
Greece is one of the EU’s poorest countries, with a median income of less than $11,000 per capita, according an IMF report last year.
Its government is facing mounting public debt that could balloon to $15.4 billion by 2020.
In 2018, Greece was awarded a loan of $4.6 billion to help it pay off its public debt.
But this amount is only a drop in the bucket compared to what Greece owes to its creditors.
Greece has a total debt of $23.6 trillion.
Greece owes some $6.9 trillion to the IMF, according as part of the latest tranche of loans.
The European Commission says Greece has more than enough money to pay all its creditors back by the end of 2018, but the IMF estimates that Greece will owe $2.6-2.7 trillion in 2019.
Greece will have to spend $2 trillion to pay back its debt to the EU and $2 billion to the International Finance Corporation.
“Greece has a lot to pay off,” said Stefanie Hirsch, senior policy analyst at the IMF.
“The current situation is really bad.”
Greece’s economy is one reason why its people are so pessimistic about the future.
A study by the World Bank showed that the country’s unemployment rate was 10.5% in 2018, down from 10.8% in 2017.
Unemployment is lower in countries that are in recession, like Italy, but higher in countries like Greece, which is struggling with a deep economic recession that began in 2009.
“A lot of people are still in shock about what’s going on,” said Hirsch.
“They are not expecting the kind of progress that they were promised by the EU.”
Greece is also facing a high debt burden.
The International Monetary Board says that the Greek government owes about $16.5 billion to its debtors.
Greece currently has about $11.3 billion in external debt, while it has about a $2-billion external debt liability to international creditors.
“Even though the IMF is giving Greece a loan to ease its external debt burden, Greece still has a high external debt to GDP ratio,” said Marcia Kortemeyer, senior economist at IHS Global Insight.
“That’s something that’s going to keep Greece from moving forward economically.”
Greece currently owes $13.5 trillion to its private creditors, including its banks.
It owes about a third of that to international lenders, the IMF says.
It has an additional $5.7 billion of external debt due to an international loan program it agreed to in 2017 with the European Central Bank.
According to the IHS, this is the largest external debt on record in the EU.
It could grow even larger as the country attempts to make progress on a new bailout agreement with its European partners.
Greece needs the IMF to help pay for the debt it owes.
Its next repayment date is September 2020.
