Government Announces Number Of Children Couples Are Allowed To Have



Government Announces Number Of Children Couples Are Allowed To Have.

Onyxnews quotes New York Times saying China authority has on Monday announced that it would allow all married couples to have three children, ending a two-child policy that has failed to boost the country’s declining birthrates and avert a demographic crisis.


The announcement by the ruling Communist Party represents a dramatic shift in the world’s most restrictive family planning policies, one that it had come under rising pressure to make.

The labor pool is collapsing and the population is reducing, threatening the industrial strategy that China has used for decades to emerge from poverty to become an economic powerhouse.


Onyxnews gathered that local officials in some areas had already been allowing couples to have three children.

But it is far from clear that relaxing the policy further will pay off.


In 2016, people in China have responded to the party’s earlier move, in 2016, to allow couples to have two children.

Monday’s announcement still splits the difference between individual reproductive rights and government limits over women’s bodies. Prominent voices within China, including the central bank, have called on the party to scrap its restrictions altogether, but Beijing has resisted giving up total control.
