BREAKING: China to end one-child policy

365naijanews-breaking-newsChina has decided to end its decades-long one-child policy, Xinhua news agency reports.

All couples will now be allowed to have two children, the state-run news agency said, citing a statement from the Communist Party.

The controversial policy was introduced nationally in 1979, to reduce the country’s birth rate and slow the population growth rate.

However, the policy led to concerns over China’s ageing population.
