Updated: 2020-06-29

The article Hainan Free Trade Port (FTP) Construction Should Have New "Hainan + N" Thinking written by Liang Haiming, president of the Hainan University Belt and Road Research Institute, was recently published in Economic Reference.

The article expounds on the importance of this new thinking in FTP construction by taking "Hainan + Hong Kong" and "Hainan + English speaking countries" as examples. It notes that Hong Kong, an international financial center, can cooperate with and complement Hainan in the financial sector.

In addition, the Hainan FTP, which will be built into an international educational innovation island, is highly complementary to English-speaking countries with rich educational resources, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand, declared Liang.
