One-Child Policy Said to Change Because Earlier Easing Failed
(Beijing) – China's leaders decided to change the one-child policy so that couples could have a second baby because they saw that an easing of the rules in 2013 had little effect, a family planning official says.
The decision to drop the one-child rule was made at the end of a four-day meeting of the party's 18th Central Committee on October 29.
A statement that the Central Committee, the party's nexus of national power, provided through the official Xinhua News Agency did not say when the change will come into effect.
