The policy of restricting the birth rate of “one family — one child” was introduced in China in 1979, when the state faced the threat of a population explosion.
In October 2015 at the fifth Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist party of China the 18th convocation, it was decided to cancel the rule, which prohibits more than one child in the family. Now the couple is allowed to have two children. A law allowing all Chinese families to have two children, entered into force on 1 January 2016.
