China one-child policy to be relaxed

China one-child policy to be relaxed

China is to relax its policy of restricting most couples to have only a single child, state media say.

In future, families will be allowed two children if one parent is an only child, says the Xinhua news agency.

The one-child policy already exempts rural dwellers and ethnic minorities.

The move comes after this week’s meeting of a key decision-making body of the governing Communist Party.
