China is studying whether to relax its one-child policy to allow more couples to have two children, the official Xinhua News Agency has reported, citing the National Health and Family Planning Commission.

Policymakers are considering a change that would allow a second baby if either parent was a sole child, according to Xinhua. Currently both parents must be only children to qualify for a second birth. No time frame for a decision was mentioned in the report.
