On 27 December 2015, the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee adopted changes to the Family Planning Law, which used to encourage couples to marry and give birth later in life (the so called “late marriage and late birth” policy) and to have only one child. The amendment to the Family Planning Law, which took effect on 1 January 2016, now encourages couples to have two children, and eliminates the “late marriage” and “late birth” concepts.
