on 11/12/2017 - 09:48 am

Relaxation of China's family planning policy was expected to provide a partial solution to the challenges faced by an aging population and become a driving economic force; however, the implementation of the "two-child policy", which took effect on January 1st, 2016, gave rise to many new questions.
