Beijing Not to Change One-Child Policy

According to China Daily: “The capital city’s policy will not be readjusted, at least in the short term, officials from the Beijing Municipal Commission of Population and confirmed yesterday. This is in response to circulated requests over whether Beijing will ease rules for couples who wish to have a second child.”

“Several other cities including Shanghai, which fears its aging society, eased such rules recently. The current regulation, which took effect in September of last year, is the newest edition. The new one made some minor adjustments to the old one, which was issued in 1991.

For example, the old regulation stipulated that a couple could only apply for a second child at least four years after the birth of their first child and the woman should be no less than 28 years old. But in the new one, couples who want to have a second child just need to meet either one of the two requirements.”
