China wants more babies

Reuters / Share:

HONG KONG (Reuters) – China is considering ending the limits it sets on the number of children a family can have, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter. China’s population is ageing rapidly, with the number of births falling by 3.5 percent to 17.23 million last year despite the country’s decision in late 2015 to relax the controversial “one-child” policy that allow couples to have a second child. China implemented its one-child policy in the 1970s to limit population growth. The one-child policy also contributed to a sharp gender imbalance.
