Subsidies mooted to counter population drift
The plan has been heavily criticised by rights activists, with rights groups alleging that it would allow the Chinese government to push its domestic population into a smaller area – with the added impact that it is less likely that foreign families will settle where they think they belong.
Ling said she would not seek to expand the number of women being married by men with Chinese names in her plan, saying instead that couples must choose to marry into their own families.
“I’m very clear in my mind that you cannot go out and introduce a proposal for the registration of Chinese names with women in your plans and allow women who are part-time who want to marry in their own families to register with me,” said Ling in her written submissions.
Ling’s move comes as the government has increased its focus on pushing Chinese people into larger rural areas and into less desirable locales such as places with a lower standard of living.
Ling also questioned why some countries, such as Germany, have more restrictive laws to help Chinese with a passport application.
However, according to Lianhe Zaobao, who works on the issue for the Chinese Association of Citizens in China, the current proposal leaves China open to the argument that it is too restrictive for people to live and work in rural areas where there is less demand.
“There is no shortage of companies with a marketability that might be available locally or even abroad. A family can o마이다스카지노wn a house and live a normal life, just like most other families in China,” she said.
Ganglixiang’s comments come after an analysis conducted by the US-based Population Reference Bureau found that China’s overall population growth was likely to continue, largely due to a rise in the number of urbanites aged 15-24 and its migration of younger people and young workers.
