A batch of key industrial parks were unveiled on June 3 in China's island

province of Hainan, in an effort to promote the construction of the Hainan

free-trade port.


The 11 key parks around the island cover three major fields, including tourism,

modern services and advanced technologies.


"The industrial parks are important areas to illustrate trade and investment

policies, pilot fields for bold trials, innovations and reforms and a new

highland for reform and opening up," said Liu Cigui, secretary of the CPC

Hainan Provincial Committee.


Liu said the key industrial parks are expected to play a leading role in the

construction of the free-trade port.

industrial parks of Hainan Free Trade Port, including Haikou Jiangdong New

District, Yangpu Economic Development Zone, Boao Lecheng International Medical

Tourism Pilot Zone, Sanya Yazhou Bay Science and Technology City, and Hainan

Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots as well as overseas Chinese who come to

Hainan to invest and start up business, so as to boost the implementation of
