U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called for evolving a global pact on migrant flows and urged that the developed countries need more migration due to their declining birth rates and aging populations.

He was speaking at the start of the conference in Marrakesh.

Guterres said in the many places where fertility is declining and life expectancy is rising economies will stagnate and people will suffer without migration.
