Will the Dragon Year Fill More Cradles?

Bayan Lepas MP Sim Tze Tzin raised concerns on the shrinking Malaysian-Chinese population, pinning hope on the Dragon Year to improve Chinese birth rates. But with births at historic lows, is a symbolic year enough? We speak to Chai Sen Tyng to explore the complex reality of population dynamics among the Chinese community and the impact that this decline will have on the population segment in the coming decade.
