On June 1, 2020, Chinese authorities released the Overall Plan for the Construction of Hainan Free Trade Port (“the Masterplan”), a large-scale plan to transform the entire island province into a Free Trade Port (FTP) – making it the largest special economic zone in China and an important node on the Maritime Silk Road, as part of the Belt and Road Initiative.
The overall goal is to liberalize the cross-border flows of trade, people and investment and to create a major international market which is easily accessible for foreign companies. In order to achieve this, Hainan will adopt special policies, such as lower import duties, lower company taxes, favourable personal income taxes and less strict visa requirements for tourists and business people.
In this context, the China International Consumer Products Expo or Hainan Expo will be held from 7 to 10 May 2021. The expo highlights the island’s and China’s opening-up to the world and aims to offer new business opportunities to foreign companies.
