One-Child talks

THE city is still waiting to hear whether it can alter the one-child policy and allow residents to have larger families.

Local population experts have been in talks on loosening the policy with government departments, but so far there is no timetable.

However, Xie Lingli, director of the Shanghai Population and Family Planning Commission, said the city was ready to act whenever an announcement was made.
