Original title: Jingchuan Stock Meeting: The establishment of Jiangdong New Area, the construction of the free trade pilot zone is moving forward
On June 3, Hainan Province decided to establish Haikou Jiangdong New Area as a key pilot area for the construction of China (Hainan) Pilot Free Trade Zone. Jiangdong New Area will be built around the strategic positioning of comprehensively deepening the reform and opening up pilot zone, the national ecological civilization pilot zone, the international tourism consumption center, and the national major strategic service guarantee zone ("three districts and one center").
On April 13 this year, Xi Jinping solemnly announced in his speech at the 30th anniversary of the establishment of a provincial special economic zone in Hainan, "The Party Central Committee supports Hainan’s entire island’s construction of a free trade pilot zone, and Hainan’s gradual exploration, Steadily promote the construction of a free trade port with Chinese characteristics, and establish a free trade port policy and system in steps and phases." On April 14, the guidance on supporting Hainan's comprehensive deepening of reform and opening up was quickly implemented. The construction of a free trade zone is a major breakthrough in China's opening-up model. It is also a new starting point for Hainan to accelerate opening up and a major development opportunity for expanding opening up.
The free trade pilot zone and the free trade port are the two core starting points for Hainan to comprehensively deepen reform and opening up. According to the "Opinions", it is divided into two steps: the first step is to build a pilot free trade zone throughout Hainan and give it a pilot policy for the pilot free trade zone. The second step is to explore the implementation of a free trade port policy in line with Hainan’s development positioning.
Pilot free trade zones: lay the foundation and make up for shortcomings
my country has 11 provinces/municipalities directly under the Central Government that have set up pilot free trade zones successively. Compared with the 11 pilot free trade zones such as Guangdong, Tianjin, etc., the Hainan Pilot Free Trade Zone has a larger scope, higher specifications and farther goals. The total area of 11 pilot free trade zones, including Shanghai and Guangdong, is about 120 square kilometers, while the Hainan free trade zone covers an area of about 35,400 square kilometers, far exceeding the total area of the 11 pilot free trade zones and far exceeding Hong Kong ( 1104 square kilometers) and Singapore (719 square kilometers) free trade port area.Expand the full text

Representativeness Free trade port-Hong Kong’s experience for reference
The free trade port is the second step of Hainan’s all-round opening up to the outside world. As the most representative free trade port in Hong Kong, foreign trade has always been an important pillar of Hong Kong's economy due to specific historical reasons and geographical location. From 1984 to 1951, Hong Kong's foreign trade model was dominated by re-export trade, and from 1951 to 1988 it was dominated by processing trade. From 1988 to 2006, the re-export port re-emerged. Since 2006, offshore trade has undergone four historic transformations.
The history of the development of the Hong Kong Free Trade Port
According to a series of measures and opportunities for Hainan to expand its opening up, We believe that in the future, under the strategic positioning of special economic zones, free trade zones, and international tourism islands, Hainan can focus on five directions: 1) Consumer industries with Hainan characteristics, such as tax-free, lottery, food and beverage, etc.; 2) tourist arrivals High growth, forming a large incremental demand for transportation, pay attention to the leading companies with a higher market share in Hainan Island; 3) Layout the Hainan tourism industry, it is expected to benefit from the construction of Hainan International Tourism Island, sharing policies and market dividends; 4) The construction of the national ecological civilization experimental zone and modern agricultural base construction will promote characteristic agriculture, ecological governance and other industries. It can focus on large-scale and professional operation of ecological gardens, agricultural processing and planting companies; 5) Incremental infrastructure construction is important for upstream building materials such as cement The needs of the listed cement companies in Hainan Island are concerned.
