The Chinese State Council announced on Tuesday that it decided to lift all restrictions on the birth of a third child, including fines.

In May, the Chinese Communist Party introduced a plan to allow couples to have three children in a bid to deal with the aging population crisis.

“To remove all restrictive measures … To cancel the payment of social security funds, to eliminate and cancel relevant penalties,” the Chinese State Council said in a statement.

Corresponding amendments will be introduced into China’s law on population and planned fertility in order to encourage marriages and childbirth “at the right age.”—APP
