China planning new policies to take on ageing population: state media

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – China is planning to include new measures to encourage more births and address its rapidly ageing population as part of its new 2021-2025 “five-year plan”, state media reported on Monday.

China will offer extensive financial and policy support to encourage couples to have more children, the official China Daily cited experts as saying.

“More inclusive population policies will be introduced to improve fertility, the quality of the workforce and the structure of the population,” said Yuan Xin, vice-president of the China Population Association. Reuters News
