    China supports couples to have multiple children

    Published By:

    In order to encourage families to have more children, the city of Jinan in eastern China’s Shandong Province started to distribute cash subsidies this year.

    “Couples in the city would be receiving a monthly allowance of 600 yuan (about 88.6 U.S. dollars) for their second or third child born from Jan. 1.

    According to the report, “this will continue until the child gets to three years old. This is an implementation plan on optimising childbirth policy, and promoting long-term and balanced population development released by the local government.

    “To be eligible for the subsidies, the parents and the second or third child should have their Hukou, or household registration status, in the city. Amid other policies to support childbirth, women enjoy 158 days of maternity leave, and their spouse would enjoy no less than 15 days of paternity leave.

    Both parents would enjoy no less than 10 days of parental leave each year before their child gets three years old.

    Families with second or third child would also receive government support in schooling, medical insurance and public rental housing.”
