FTP bonanza lures talents to Hainan
Hainan attracted 10,579 foreign talents between April 13, 2018, when China made it a free trade port (FTP), and Aug 31 this year.
The island province introduced a plan in May 2018 to woo 1 million talents from home and abroad by 2025, offering them preferential policies related to household registration, loans, rent, medical treatment, children's education and spouse's employment.
This year's first recruitment drive has provided more than 30,000 job vacancies in government organs, public institutions, State-owned enterprises, industrial parks, legal institutions and private companies for global talents.
