China Mulls Incentives to Entice Parents to Have Second Child
(Beijing) — Delegates to China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) and the top government advisory body, both now meeting in Beijing, have proposed allowances and tax breaks for couples willing to have more children in order to encourage more births and tackle the problems of an increasingly aging population.
The proposals come after the number of babies born under the nation’s new two-child policy — in place since the beginning of 2016 — appears not to be enough to increase or even sustain the country’s population of 1.4 billion.
