Fine re­mains for violating fam­ily plan­ning pol­icy

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

China’s top fam­ily plan­ning au­thor­ity will con­tinue as­sess­ing a 12-year-old fine for violating the fam­ily plan­ning pol­icy.

That mes­sage was de­liv­ered at a sym­po­sium or­ga­nized by the Na­tional Health and Fam­ily Plan­ning Com­mis­sion.

Spokes­woman Song Shuli said no timetable has been es­tab­lished for an over­all twochild pol­icy as “that re­quires fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion and as­sess­ment, given the huge ef­fect from any change to pop­u­la­tion poli­cies”.

China an­nounced at the end of 2013 that cou­ples with only one spouse who is an only child could have a sec­ond child, but stressed the coun­try will keep the fam­ily plan­ning pol­icy, cit­ing the bur­den from the na­tion’s pop­u­la­tion size on so­cioe­co­nomic de­vel­op­ment.
