China Third Child Policy : Chinese Government Are Motivating People To Have Three Children

Written by admin
Chinese provinces have announced a slew of supportive measures, including subsidizing pregnancy and childbirth expenses and tax exemptions for couples to have a third child. Its purpose is to stop the rapid decline in the birth rate in the world’s most populous country. China’s national parliament, the National People’s Congress (NPC), formally approved the three-child policy in August.

This is a big policy step to solve the deepening demographic crisis in the country. The NPC passed an amended population and family planning law that allows Chinese couples to have up to three children. This is probably a move to address the problem of Chinese couples not being interested in having more children because of the cost of raising children.

Government announced help
More than 20 provincial-level regions in China have amended their local child birth rules since the Population and Family Planning Act was passed in August. China’s state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Monday that Beijing, Sichuan and Jianxi among other regions have announced a number of supportive measures in this regard. These include grant of paternity leave, extension of maternity leave and leave for marriage and extension of paternity leave.

Population growth slow, third child approved
“The government should take the lead in sharing the cost of pregnancy and childbirth,” said Yang Wenzhou, official of the National Health Commission. China revoked the decades-old one-child policy in 2016 and allowed all couples to have two children. China was allowed to have three children after the census showed that the growth rate of China’s population was slow.
