Fines set for overseas births over legal limits (3)

(Shanghai Daily)

08:39, November 02, 2012

Officials from Shanghai Population and Family Planning Commission said population experts have long called for loosening the strict one-child policy.

"The government is actually contradictory in announcing that it is insisting on its family planning policy while planning on stabilizing the country's total birth rate at 1.8," said Sun Changmin, vice director of Shanghai's population commission.

Total birth rate is the number of children a woman bears in her entire life.

"The total birth rate in China is only 1.2 and below 0.9 in Shanghai," Sun said. "If allowing each couple to have only one child, how can we realize the ideal total birth rate?"
