What did the deputy dean of the college say?
Liang Guohui, deputy dean of Miayang Flying Vocational College, said in a statement that I hope students can feel the love while enjoying nature, according to NBC News. It will be helpful in developing the emotions of the students. During this, homework has also been given to the students in which they have been asked to write a diary and make a video of the journey.
The deputy dean said that these measures are an attempt to boost the declining birth rate of the country. Experts say they are focusing on slowing rather than stopping the population decline. They are doing the best they can. Explain that China is facing a decreasing population rate due to the one-child policy implemented between 1980 and 2015.
China’s population rate fell so much in 2021
China’s birth rate fell last year to 6.77 births per 1,000 people from 7.52 in 2021, the lowest on record. According to the New York Times, 9.56 million people were born in China last year, while 10.41 million people died. Let us inform that the Chinese government had removed the One Child Policy Act in 2016.
In 2021, China had increased the limit of having children to three, but despite staying at home during Kovid, the couple was reluctant to have children. Explain that the requirement for women to be legally married to register their children was also removed. According to a new law in China, couples can have children even without marriage and they will be given all the government benefits that a married couple gets.
