Beijing: Li Bin, head of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, has said China's family planning policy will not change in the foreseeable future, adding there are no plans for a complete relaxation currently.
"Our resources pale in comparison with our vast population. Until these changes, we will continue with the current family planning policy. There is no timetable for the full relaxation of the policy [although] it will continue to be improved and adjusted," Xinhua quoted Li as saying on the sidelines of the country's annual legislative session.
As per reports, China's population numbered 1.375 billion as compared to 320 million in the United States as of 2015.
Li asserted that China's per capita economic output was considerably low as was the average living standard.
China this year eased its 'one child policy' by allowing all married couple to have two children on the condition that either parent was an only child.
The change ended the 'one child policy' since it was implemented in the late 1970s.
Reports say that the two-child policy will see three million more children born in China every year.
