The Communist Party of China (CPC) is set to allow all couples to have two children, abandoning its four and a half decade-long one-child policy as per the announcement made on October 29, 2015, after a four-day long Fifth Plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee. The change of policy is intended to balance population development and address the challenge of an ageing population; however, the proposal must be approved by the top legislature before it is enacted.
A majority of Chinese families that have a second child are happier, according to a survey jointly conducted by Radio Guangdong News Channel and a number of fertility websites, interviewed nearly 10,000 two-child families, with 63 per cent reporting feeling happier after the birth of the second child.
