Establishment of a response system for coping with low birthrate

1. Response to low birthrates in full force

  • (Reinforcement of proactive responses) Strengthening the role of the control tower for responding to low birthrates with the launch of the 5th committee for responding to low fertility and aging society (February)

    - Composition and operation of the population policy improvement planning bureau within the committee, with the committee taking a lead role in reviewing major issues for responding to low birthrate-related issues and holding public discussions

  • (Supplementation of basic plan) In-depth review of core policies for responding to low fertility, and the development of government-wide supplementary measures

    * (Example) Elimination of blind spots by providing care services for elementary school students, and the promotion of work environment innovation for work-family reconciliation (decrease of working hours, flexible and home-based work, etc.)

2. Encouragement of social efforts for coping with low birthrate-related issues

  • (Support to local governments with outstanding performance) Expansion of incentives, such as granting special subsidy tax, to local governments with outstanding performance by establishing a separate evaluation system* related to coping with low fertility issues.

    * Addition of the response to low birthrate issues to the joint evaluation on local governments, competition on low-birthrate countermeasures of local governments, promotion of well-designed models for responding to low birthrate-related issues, etc.

  • (Involvement of the private sector) Enhancement of incentives* for companies with friendly policies for marriage, childbirth and child-rearing, substantially greater reflection of related indicators in the evaluation of public institutions, and encouragement of a culture that supports child-rearing.

    * (Example) Reflecting marriage, childbirth and parenting-friendly companies in corporate disclosure, and preferential treatment in cases of government procurement
