Cai Jiming, deputy to the 12th National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislative body, called for a variety of measures to better implement China's universal 'two-child' policy, which came into effect on January 1, 2016.

At this year's "Two Sessions", Cai, who also serves as director of the Center for Political Economics at Tsinghua University, presented a proposal on the encouragement of fertility against the backdrop of the 'two-child' era.

Considering how to better carry out China's new family planning policy and encourage more couples to have a second child, Cai put forward many countermeasures to deal with this problem:

- Create a better environment for those of childbearing age and reduce relevant costs.

- The government should provide subsidies to establish more childcare centers and after-school supervision institutes.

- Improve the maternity leave system.

- Promote the reform of the education system, incorporate high school into compulsory education and improve the university loan system.

- Deepen the reform of the pension system and comprehensively integrate childcare and the old-age pension mechanism into the social security system.
