China announces new three child policy

Chinese baby

China has announced a new law change to allow couples to have up to three children.

The change in law is due to a dramatic decline in births in the world’s most populous country.

China’s fertility rate is currently at 1.3. This is below the level needed to maintain a stable population.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, there were officially 12 million babies born in 2020. This is 2.65 million fewer than were born in 2019, an 18% fall.

For more than 35 years, China enforced a controversial one-child policy. In 2015 a two-child limit was bought in to help. However, this didn’t increase as many predicted.
