Two-child policy needs support

Although the country has given the green light to all couples to have a second child, relevant government departments should introduce practical measures for the implementation of the welcomed but overdue policy as a way of dealing with an accelerating aging society.

Without auxiliary measures, the two-child policy may not produce the results expected by decision-makers.

The country has already permitted couples to have a second child when one of the couple is an only child, most of whom were born after 1980. The latest change to the family planning policy is mainly targeted at couples who were born before 1980.
