Fine remains for violating family planning policy
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.
