The Chinese government issued a new set of guidelines on August 16, 2022, to fast-track the implementation of a robust support system meant to encourage more couples to have children. The system offers perks such as preferential housing for couples with more than one child and improved maternity leave policies. China scrapped its decades-old one-child policy in 2016, and now allows couples to have up to 3 children. In 2021, the country’s national birth rate hit a record low of 7.52 births for every 1,000 people.
