Beijing to control population growth, report says

Beijing will take action to control the growth of permanent resident population in the capital city, the China News Agency reported Monday, citing Mayor Wang Anshun. The swelling population has posed a serious challenge to the municipality’s transport and environment. The city’s population grew to 20.18 million in 2011, of which 7.42 million were non-native, the report said.
