Two-child policy to be implemented from 2014, paper says

A new policy allowing families to have a second child if either parent is an only child will be implemented gradually next year in various places across the country, Beijing Times reported Sunday, citing Wang Peian, vice minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission. Wang told China Central Television in an interview that the policy is a long-term one and qualified parents should wait for the implementing guidelines to be published by their local government units. Meanwhile, the commission has asked local governments not to delay the implementation of the new policy, the report said.
