Chinese Parliament opens new session with intense agenda

Beijing, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) China's National People's Congress (Parliament) on Tuesday opened a new session with an agenda that will examine several bills and amendments, especially those related to family planning.

The Standing Committee of that legislative body will be in session until Friday and expects to endorse the Government’s decision to allow couples to have three children, in an effort to counteract low birth rate and people aging in the country.

This initiative eliminates measures such as fines for couples that violate the law to have more children than they are permitted and includes support actions such as exploring parental leave and the establishment of more nursery facilities in residential communities, public areas and workplaces.

It will seek to improve and lower the cost of public services related to the education of children and the care of the elderly, as well as reinforce assisted reproduction, prenatal and postnatal care, and pregnancy monitoring.

Apart from that issue, the Chinese Parliament will review the amendment to the military service law in order to strengthen protection of women’s rights and interests into the People’s Liberation Army.

Another issue will be the regulation that proposes more legal aid resources for the country’s remote regions and one against big data-enabled price discrimination on customers.
