    #China’s ruling Communist Party said Monday it will ease #birthlimits to allow all couples to have three children instead of two in hopes of slowing the rapid aging of its population, which is adding to strains on the economy and society. The ruling party has enforced birth limits since 1980 to restrain population growth but worries the number of working-age people is falling too fast while the share over age 65 is rising. FRANCE 24’s Business Editor Yuka Royer explains.
