Meta: Berat, the district most affected by the shrinking population

The head of the Freedom Party, Ilir Meta, stopped today in Berat, from where he declared that this district has been affected the most by the shrinking of the population and the closing of small businesses.

Meta said that due to misgovernance, Berat district faces many problems such as suicides, abortions and divorces.

"It is unfortunate the situation in which the population in the District of Berat is located, because Berat, instead of shining in terms of development and economic indicators, is unfortunately at the head of some of the negative phenomena that have affected our country .

Berat is one of the counties most affected by depopulation. Berat is in second place in terms of the decrease in the number of births with 17%, while the national average is 12.7%. In 2021, the population decline in Berat was 2.1% with 2500 people less, in 2022, the situation worsened even further with 3600 people less.

Berat is the second district with the largest number of closed small businesses, where from 2014-2021 small businesses fell by 13%", said Meta.
