China rubberstamps two-child policy
It's official. From January 1, 2016 China will allow two children for every couple. Chinese lawmakers rubber-stamped the new legislation Sunday during a session of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, which governs the country's laws, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported. "The state advocates that one couple shall be allowed to have two children," according to the newly revised Law on Population and Family Planning.
