Recently, Chinese population experts have suggested building a population balanced society. A seminar was held at the weekend in Beijing for deeper discussions on the issue.
Experts think China's population development faces many kinds of problems and challenges. They include gender unbalance, and aging problems. Indeed all these can be seen as a population unbalance.
Li Jianmin, Nankai University, said, "To balance the population means pursuing a comprehensive development of population including its structure, quality and other relevant aspects. It also means coordinating population development with social development. "
Yu Xuejun, Spokesman for National Population and Family Planning Commission, said, "The family planning policy in the past 20 to 30 years has made a great contribution. But now, new problems have emerged. Like the aging issue and flowing population issue. We need to have an integrated approach to population, its structure and quality. "
The National Population and Family Planning Commission says that the suggestions from population scholars are positive. They also believe population development has entered a new stage, and China's population policy is going to have to be changed.
