The administration of China, troubled by the growing population of the country, has now allowed citizens to produce three children. China’s official news agency, Xinhua, reported that the rules of childbirth have been relaxed in view of the country’s aging population. This historic decision was taken in a meeting chaired by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Xinhua said that this decision was taken at a meeting of the Politburo chaired by Xi Jinping. Indeed, China’s population has increased by 0.53 percent to 1.41178 billion as compared to 2019. The population was 1.4 billion in 2019. However, it is expected to decrease by the beginning of next year. According to the seventh national population census released on Tuesday by the Chinese government, all 31 of China’s provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities had a population of 1.41178 billion.
89.4 crore people between 15 and 59 years of age in the country
According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the new census data shows that the crisis China was facing is expected to deepen, as the country’s population of people over the age of 60 rises to 264 million. . NBS said in a statement that increasing the population average age would increase the pressure on long-term balanced growth. 89.4 crore people in the country are between 15 and 59 years of age, which is 6.79 percent less than in 2010.
Chinese leaders had imposed birth limits since 1980 to stop the population from growing, but now they are concerned that the number of working-aged people in the country is rapidly decreasing and this has led to a prosperous economy. Efforts are being hampered. Birth limits have been relaxed in China, but couples are reluctant to give birth because of inflation, small housing and job discrimination against mothers.
