They propose to increase the birth rate with the help of pets in Taiwan 07:22

Taiwan’s billionaire presidential candidate, Terry Gou, has offered to give couples free pets in case they have a baby to increase the birth rate in the country. British newspaper writes that Guard.

Terry Gow announced his intention to run for president as an independent last week. He said during the campaign that Taiwan’s birth rate, one of the lowest in the world, could be addressed by giving young parents a cat or dog. A rapidly aging population threatens Taiwan’s economy and military defence. Meanwhile, the number of pet owners is growing rapidly, and according to some reports, many couples prefer pets over children.

“If you have a baby, I’ll let you raise another pet… If humans don’t have babies in the future, who will take care of our furry friends?” … That’s why I brought these two issues together,” he said.

This proposal has been criticized by some government politicians and animal welfare groups.
