BEIJING: Authorities in China's capital will extend leave from work for new mothers and fathers, state media reported on Friday, in what appeared to be the latest incentive to encourage families to have more children.
The world's largest economy faces a shrinking labour force and aging population, meaning it could be the first country in the world to age before it first gets rich.
Last year, the ruling Chinese Communist Party announced it would relax its long-standing and controversial "one-child policy", allowing all couples to have two children.

interesting article, how about a similar article on Indian workforce
Earlier they prevented childbirth more than one and now they give more leave to increase to two..Funny but citizens lost the fun for 40 plus years.. They seem to be very tolerant ..fit for some of ours to go there and enjoy..!!
When will this policy be introduced in India
INDIA SHOULD ALSO IMPLEMENT THIS POLICY .. GOOD FOR NEWBORN BABIES AND MOTHERS..

REtrospective movement. WE want women in different workforce, nation building in different manner.
