On June 1, the "Overall Plan for the Construction of Hainan Free Trade Port" was officially announced. The State Council Office held a press conference on June 8 to introduce the relevant situation of the "Overall Plan for the Construction of Hainan Free Trade Port" and answer questions from reporters. A reporter asked at the meeting: The goal of this plan is to make Hainan the hub of future international trade and finance. Does this mean that future Hainan will replace part of the function and status of Hong Kong now?
Lin Nianxiu pointed out that as we all know, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai are typical representatives of the current international high-level free trade ports, and their construction models and policies have their own characteristics. Everyone knows that Hong Kong is an important international financial center, shipping center and trade center, and has been selected by many international organizations as one of the world's freest economies and one of the most competitive regions. Especially after the return of Hong Kong to the motherland, Hong Kong continues to maintain prosperity and stability under the "one country, two systems" principle, and is deeply integrated into the grand journey of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
Lin Nianxiu said that to build a free trade port in Hainan, it is necessary to learn from the advanced experience of internationally renowned free trade ports, connect with high-standard international economic and trade rules, and explore an open system with international competitiveness. At the same time, it is necessary to give full play to Hainan's rich natural resources, unique geographical location, and the advantages of relying on the ultra-large domestic market and hinterland economy, focusing on the freedom and convenience of trade and investment, focusing on the development of tourism, modern services and high-tech industries, and accelerating the cultivation The new advantages of cooperation and competition with Hainan characteristics have injected new vitality into the development of global free trade ports.
Lin Nianxiu said that in this sense, the positioning of Hainan Free Trade Port and Hong Kong are different, and the key development industries are also different. It should be said that complementarity is greater than competition and will not have an impact on Hong Kong. Next, in the process of building a free trade port in Hainan, we will further strengthen the joint development with the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, actively carry out pragmatic and effective cooperation, guarantee Hong Kong's long-term stability and long-term prosperity and stability, and ensure the stability of the "one country, two systems" practice.
