A birthrate for Pakistan of around 1.5% would be ideal. Eventually, we will need a larger population in addition to a strong economy if we want to become a strong and powerful nation. We don't want to go down the route the west and some Asian countries are going down, with the overall population size shrinking, and the percentage of 65+ to increasing to uncontrollable levels.

the percentage of 65+ to increasing to uncontrollable levels.

That's unavoidable. The better medicine gets, the longer people will live. The key is finding ways to keep it manageable.

I'm not against people living longer, I just think the population should be better balanced in comparison to what developed countries are like now.

Higher life expectancy is just one factor.
