Half of all registered adoptions of foreign children in the eastern Spanish region of Valencia are of Chinese descent, according to a report by a regional adoption agency published on Monday.

The Piao agency, which on Sunday celebrated its tenth anniversary, said 702 Chinese youngsters found homes in the region between 2003 and 2006 out of a total of 1 432 children...

Nonetheless, a change in Chinese adoption legislation which took effect on May 1 and laid down a range of new restrictions is likely to reduce the number of cases from that country by about 40 percent, according to Piao.
