China allows couples to have three children

11 minutes ago

China has announced that it will allow each couple to have up to three children, marking the end of a strict two-child policy.

The change was approved by President Xi Jinping in a politburo meeting, state media outlet Xinhua said.

It comes after a once-in-a-decade census showed that China's population grew at its slowest pace in decades.

This added pressure on Beijing to boost measures for couples to have more babies and avert a population decline.

China's census, released earlier this month, showed that around 12 million babies were born last year - a significant decrease from the 18 million in 2016, and the lowest number of births recorded since the 1960s.

It was widely expected after the census data results were released that China would relax its family policy rules.

It's worth noting you could have more than two children but had to pay a fee which is a big deal for a country that has never had a GDP per capita over $10,000 or so.

Unless the government of China encourages women to become mothers by doing various things, this will not do anything.

What happens if the Chinese birthrate still isn't any higher in two years?

Financial incentives for those who have babies?
