China has announced that it will allow couples to have up to three children, after Census data showed a step decline in birth rates.
China scrapped its decades-old one-child policy in 2016, replacing it with a two-child limit which has failed to lead to a sustained upsurge in births.
The cost of raising children in cities has deterred many Chinese Couples.
The latest move was approved by President XI Jinping in a politburo meeting.
