Hainan Island is one of the largest islands in China and is in the focus of international investors. It is the size of Belgium, and has a temperate climate, beautiful beaches with fine white sand, palm trees and crystal clear water.

Known as “the Hawaii of China”, Hainan has everything to receive tourism and become the country’s key global trade point, so much so that in 2019 it received 83 million domestic and foreign visitors. That is why the Xi Jinping government  is investing in this free trade zone that could take on Singapore internationally, or replace Hong Kong as the nerve center for Chinese investment and finance. This island will be a key point of global trade that would also serve for the expected opening of its system.

Trade-free port from 2025

China has announced a series of facilities in all areas (taxation, foreign investment and property, commercial operations) with which to promote the transit of capital, data and people in the region. The project will be a reality from 2025, but before that measures are being carried out, such as the exemption of import tariffs or the improvement of fiscal conditions for companies registered and operating on the island.
