Universal two-child policy

China further relaxed its more than three-decade-old family planning policy, according to a statement issued on Oct 29 by the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

Roughly 90 million Chinese couples will become eligible to have a second child.

It's the latest move by the authorities to fine-tune the family planning policy, amid the nation's changing demo-graphics, which could lead to potential labor shortages in the future if not addressed.

The statement said the country's aging trend would be actively addressed by the universal two-child policy, and that China would continue to stick to the family planning policy as a basic State interest.
