The Australian prime minister, Kevin Rudd, has appointed Australia's first minister for population.

Tony Burke will take on the role, but will keep his current portfolio of agriculture, fisheries and forestry as well.

Kevin Rudd says Mr Burke will spend the next 12 months developing a strategy to manage changes in Australia's population.

Mr Rudd says population growth is expected to be slower over the next 40 years than it was over the past 40.
