 China Officially Ends One-Child Policy, Allows Couples to Have Two Children

Over three and half decades China had adopted a 'one child policy' that prevented over 400 million births in the country. Amid deepening demographic crisis of shrinking workforce and aging population in the world's second largest economy, China on Sunday, December 27, 2015, officially ended this policy, allowing couples to have a second child.

Chinese lawmakers passed a historic decision allowing all couples to have two children from January 1, 2016. The newly revised Law on Population and Family Planning states that 'the state advocates that one couple shall be allowed to have two children'.
