China’s top family planning authority has stressed that its local affiliates must implement the current one-child policy, until a new policy allowing all couples to have two children goes into effect after being ratified by legislators. The online statement by the National Health and Family Planning Commission, refutes claims that the new policy was effective as soon as it was announced.The Communist Party of China announced the abolishment of its decades-old one-child policy at the close of a key meeting on October 29, in an attempt to balance population development and offset the burden of an aging population.About 90 million families may qualify for the new two-child policy, which would help raise the population to an estimated 1.45 billion by 2030, the planning commission has said.
