Gradually explore and steadily promote the construction of free trade ports with Chinese characteristics, and build a free trade port policy and institutional system in a step-by-step and phased manner. This is the new mission of reform and opening up to the Hainan Special Economic Zone by the Party Central Committee in the new era, and it is a manifestation of China’s opening up to the outside world and its activeness. A major move to promote the determination of economic globalization. Implementing the internship, Comrade Jin Ping, in the spirit of the important speech of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the provincial special economic zone in Hainan Province and the opening ceremony of the first China International Import Expo, speeding up the exploration of the process of building a free trade port with Chinese characteristics is of great significance to promoting the formation of a new pattern of China’s opening up to the outside world. .
Since the reform and opening up, China’s opening up to the outside world has continued to improve. In 1980, the central government decided to set up a special economic zone and opened an important breakthrough in opening up. At present, the construction of a free trade port with Chinese characteristics is also of epoch-making significance in the history of China’s opening up. The free trade port takes the lead in taking a new path in coordinating the two major domestic and international situations, coordinating deepening reform and opening up, coordinating multilateral cooperation and bilateral cooperation, and is of great significance to the opening up of China in the new stage.
To build a free trade port with Chinese characteristics, we must strengthen and improve the party’s leadership, adhere to the socialist system, aim at serving the country’s major strategy, open-minded, institutional innovation as the core, service trade as the dominant, urban-rural integration, and land. Marine integration and green development are important features. Through comprehensive deepening of reform and opening up, we will build an open platform with the highest level of global openness, the most international competitiveness, and the most characteristic, and then contribute to China’s wisdom and China’s programs for building a community of human interests and a community of destiny.
Comrade Xi Jinping pointed out that Hainan’s development cannot focus on entrepot trade and processing and manufacturing, but should be led by the development of tourism, modern service industries and high-tech industries. Therefore, the prominent features of the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port should be characterized by service trade. From the practice of the past year, the key to Hainan’s exploration of building a free trade port with Chinese characteristics is to accelerate the process of free trade under the service industry. This not only adapts to the new situation of economic globalization and the general trend of China’s expansion and opening up, but also conforms to the development orientation of Hainan. At present, China should regard the development of service trade as the focus of opening up to the outside world. This is mainly based on the following three backgrounds: First, the growth rate of global trade in services is much higher than that of goods; second, the dependence of trade in goods on trade in services has increased significantly; With the rise of a new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation, service trade will become the focus of new global economic competition. Most of the internationally renowned free trade ports are mainly entrepot trade and processing trade. With the improvement of development level, most free trade ports are transforming and upgrading to service trade. Under the new situation of the current globalization of service industry and the integration of China’s economic structural transformation and upgrading, Hainan Free Trade Port has formed a prominent feature dominated by service trade, forming a new pattern of expanding opening up with service trade as the leading factor, which will be in the future China. It plays an important leading role in the development of service trade and the opening of the service industry market. To this end, it is necessary to form an industrial structure with tourism as the leader, modern service industry as the leading factor and service-oriented economy as the mainstay, and to build a new service trade system that conforms to international standards and has Hainan characteristics.
In the work of building a free trade port in Hainan, the key is to form an institutional arrangement for a free trade port. The establishment of the world’s highest level of openness by the free trade port system is not only a simple benchmarking and docking of the current open standards, but also a test reserve and stress test for the promotion of open and inclusive shared free trade system reform in the future. To this end, we must adhere to openness first, institutional innovation as the core, remove all institutional and institutional obstacles that constrain development, and provide important guarantees for accelerating Hainan’s free trade port construction and achieving the country’s major strategic goals.
