SEOUL Wholesale Cleveland Indians Jerseys , Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's top economic policymaker vowed Thursday to actively address a prolonged low childbirth to raise its growth potential.

Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon, who doubles as deputy prime minister for economic affairs, told reporters that he was significantly worried about the country's long-term growth potential given the low birth rate, according to local media reports.

According to the statistical agency data, the number of newborn babies in South Korea kept falling for 19 straight months through June when about 28,900 babies were born.

The June figure was down 12.2 percent from a year earlier. The newborns continued to fall since December 2015.

For the first six months of this year, childbirths amounted to 188,500 Wholesale Cincinnati Reds Jerseys , down 12.3 percent compared with the same period of last year.

The low birthrate has been a headache for the economy as it reduces the workforce amid the fast-aging population. The low childbirth and the population aging would drag down the economy's growth potential.

The finance minister said that if the current trend continues, the annualized birth rate of the country would decline to the lowest in the world.

He vowed to re-organize the ministry to create a new department in charge of low childbirth and the population aging as part of efforts to reduce living costs necessary to raise children.

ZHANGJIAKOU, Hebei Province, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Walking under the shade of the trees, Wang Wenhua remembers the days when the barren mountains were swept by sandstorms.

"After we had the forest planted Wholesale Chicago White Sox Jerseys , gone were the sandstorm and flash floods," said the 59-year-old woman. "Villagers saw the improvement and their minds changed as well."

Wang lives in the Zhenzigou village of Guyuan county, Zhangjiakou in northern China's Hebei Province, believed to be a "protective screen" for the capital Beijing.

Those who live in Beijing remember decades ago, when people in the capital had to wear gauze scarves before going out in the sandstorms. The situation in Zhangjiakou was worse.

An Chunfu, 60, lives in Miaotan village. When he was young, he remembered a saying Wholesale Chicago Cubs Jerseys , "A wind each year, from spring to winter."

"After the wind a pile of sand was left in the house, which was so tall that by stepping on the pile you could mount the roof," he said.

"When it rained, there were floods, because the mountains were so barren that even if you dropped a needle, you could easily find it," Wang said. "The farmland was inundated."

Zhangjiakou started planting a forest net in the 1950s to protect the farmland. In 1978 Wholesale Boston Red Sox Jerseys , it launched projects to return the farmland to forestry.

Wang, as Party chief of Zhenzigou village, began leading villagers to plant trees in 2000.

"At first it was difficult," she said. "Some even threatened to commit suicide instead of planting trees, because they had cattle. If we planted trees, the grass would be fenced so that the cattle could not graze."

After some time, she managed to persuade some women to work with her, leaving the men doing their farm work. Gradually Wholesale Baltimore Orioles Jerseys , people saw the necessity of planting trees and joined in.

Zhenzigou mirrored the change of Zhangjiakou, where forests cover 308,733 hectares and 22.4 percent of land is forested.

"After we had forests, the wind seemed less strong," An Chunfu said.

Wang said: "We had more rainfall and the oats grew well. In the past, the fruit was as small as a bird's tongue."

Seeing improvement in the environment, many villagers gave up raising cattle and went into towns and cities to work.

"After the reform and opening up, we had 300 to 500 cows and 4 Wholesale Atlanta Braves Jerseys ,000 sheep, now the village has less than 100 sheep and only 20 cows," Wang said.

But new problems soon arose.

In Zhangjiakou where the weather is dry, only a few trees can grow. Due to falling groundwater levels and poor management, many poplars planted last century died.

The dying trees, still thin, were called "young old trees."

"They withered before growing into big trees," said Yang Fan Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys , head of the forestry bureau of Kangbao county in Zhangjiakou. "In such difficult conditions, even trees have to do their utmost to grow up."

Some villagers went to forestry authorities, complaining that the sandstorms had returned and their farmland was buried.

According to the forestry bureau of Zhangjiakou, among the 101,933 hectares of poplar forests, about 80 percent degenerated.

In 2014 Zhangjiakou started replacing the dead or dying trees, planning to complete the task in three years. Currently 64,380 hectares have been replaced Wholesale MLB Baseball Jerseys , with pine trees planted instead of poplars.

"Pine trees need less water than poplars and can live longer," said Wang Jinhuan, head of the forestry bureau of Zhangbei county.

Villagers joined the effort. An Chunfu became a ranger, contracted for 13.3 hectares of forest, and patrolled every day.

The forests alone bring villagers little profits, and the locals find different ways to increase their incomes.

Duan Guibin, 46, has contracted 266.7 hectares of land in Kangbao county Wholesale Baseball Jerseys , half forest and half uncultivated land. Duan plants mushrooms in the forest and roses on the rest of the land.

He hires locals from poverty-stricken households to work for daily pay of 80 yuan (11.9 U.S. dollars).
