Abstract/Citation: A population policy is established to reinforce national development with the following goals: limitation of the rate of growth to one that is sustainable by the economy; incorporation of the demographic dimension; contribution to meeting the basic goals of people and enhancement of quality and utilisation of national resources; promotion of the health and welfare of people, particularly of mothers and children; moderation of the expected rise in population through voluntary family planning; and guidance of rural-urban migration to minimize socio-economic problems and optimize benefits to migrants and non-migrants alike.
