Beijing: The Chinese Army has been engulfed in such a crisis, that it is difficult for them to get out soon. Indeed, the fall in the Fertility Rate in China will make it difficult for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to recruit youth in the coming years. Every year the PLA gives a gun to such a large number of youths, who are ready to do anything for it. But the way the fertility rate has come down, it is a matter of concern for him.
Army Officers were warned
According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP) report, recently released census data shows that 12 million children were born in China last year, the lowest since 1961. The report quoted experts as saying that many military officials and observers have expressed concern about the impact of a child policy on the military since 1993. In 2012, Professor Liu Mingfu of PLA National Defense University warned that at least 70 percent of PLA soldiers were from families with children. Therefore this subject needs extra attention.
China has the largest military
China has the largest military in the world and has to recruit thousands of new soldiers every year. In such a situation, the fall in birth rate is like a crisis that is not going to stop soon, military expert Antony Wong Tong said that in the last decades, the PLA has recruited more women soldiers, in fact the developed countries who are new blood Is suffering from lack of it, it is a popular trend among them. At the same time, Professor of Demography Jiang Quambao has said that steps such as identifying a gender and having an abortion to produce a boy during the one-child policy are responsible for population reduction.
PLA will increase difficulties
Somewhere in China, it was feared that the one-child policy could be overshadowed in the coming times. Therefore, in 2016, by relaxing this policy, he also allowed his people to have a second child, but to no avail. Let me tell you that the One-Child Policy was implemented in China in 1979 and it was lifted in 2016. Experts say that despite government efforts, a further decline in birth rate can be recorded in the coming years. That means difficulties will increase for the Chinese Army.
