CHINA - One Child Policy Revisited

After 30 years, the Chinese Supreme Court has decided to review the 'one child policy' adopted by Deng Xiaoping in 1979 to control the most populous country in the world.

The one child law has not actually been abolished, but only changed to include greater tolerance. Until now, the decree allowed only couples made ​​up of two only children to be able to have a second child. With the new reform, this privilege has now been extended, and while restricted to urban centers, couples in which only one of the spouses is an only child will now be able to have two children.
