The "Island Duty Free" policy is the "golden sign" of Hainan Tourism. Hainan will relax the tax-free shopping quota for outlying islands to 100,000 yuan per person per year by 2025, and expand the variety of tax-free goods. "This is the most attractive policy for Hainan tourism."

Allowing the island to buy duty-free imported goods on the positive list is a highlight of the free trade port construction benefiting consumers on the island.

Benefiting from this policy, local residents in Hainan will enjoy cheaper, high-quality imported goods in the future. At the same time, the implementation of a "zero tariff" negative list management of production equipment imported for use by enterprises is of great benefit to Hainan enterprises, especially high-tech enterprises.

At present, Hainan is at a critical stage of poverty alleviation. Not only does it need to complete the bottom line goal of poverty alleviation, but also ensure that farmers continue to increase their income and become rich.
