In the next 30 years, only the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (AML) and the Algarve are expected to gain population.

The country’s interior regions are recording losses of above 20%.

The EU’s statistics office Eurostat has forecast that Portugal will be among the countries that loses most residents.

It calculated that in 2050 the population would sit just below 9.4 million, and in 2100, it will have fewer than eight million inhabitants.
