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.

On the same day, the first batch of service stations for Hong Kong, Macao and 
Taiwan compatriots as well as overseas Chinese were established in five key 
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 
Ecological Software Park.

The service stations are under the unified guidance of the United Front Work 
Department of Hainan Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, with 
the aim to provide business consultation and coordination guidance for Hong 
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 
relevant policies of the Hainan Free Trade Port.

At present, there are 3.9 million overseas Hainanese in more than 60 countries 
and regions. About 400 thousand Hong Kong and Macao compatriots are from the 
hometown of Hainan, There are more than 3,000 Taiwanese compatriots and over

by the middle of the century.
