Chinese authorities are working on a complete abolition of birth control. In Parliament, the national people’s Congress the national people’s Congress (NPC) — has already started discussion of the bill, reports The Global Times.
According to the newspaper, the draft law does not spelled out the restrictions in 2016, two children in the family. According to the source, the revised document will be approved at the plenary session of the NPC in March 2020. This means that China may soon remove restrictions on the number of children in families.
According to experts, the demographic situation in the country in recent years has changed dramatically, so there must be changes in the policy of birth planning.
In may this year it was reported that the Chinese authorities are considering to cancel all restrictions on the number of children in the family. Later the information appeared that the governments of some regions urged citizens to have a second child for the financial bonus.
Such measures are accepted in connection with the fact that the majority of the citizens decided not to have children after the abolition in 2016 the policy of “One family — one child”. This is due to the large Chinese expenditure on education: to provide the person with everything necessary to 22 years old, the family needs to spend an average of at least 740-960 thousand yuan (109-140 thousand dollars). The average monthly income of Chinese people is about eight thousand yuan, wrote Wemedia.ifeng.com.
China is the most populous country in the world. In 2017 there were about 1.4 billion people. The campaign for birth control “One family — one child” was carried out in China since 1979. Its goal included the limitation of population by the year 2000, the level of 1,2 billion people. The task was essentially completed: November 1, 2000, this level was exceeded 42,5 million citizens.
The desire of the Chinese necessarily give birth to a boy led to a gender imbalance: at this time men in the country is 20 million more than women. By 2020 the gap will reach 24 million people. The authorities are trying by various measures to encourage the birth of girls, but the traditions to overcome is not yet possible.
