Hainan's Haiwen Bridge officially opens to traffic


Puqian Bridge, which links Haikou, the capital city of Hainan Province and an ancient town in Wenchang city, will officially open to traffic at 3pm today. The opening ceremony kicked off at 9am this morning with the name of the bridge officially changed into Haiwen Bridge.

The total length of the bridge is 5.597 km, including about 3.959 km across the sea. The main bridge is 460 meters long and the tower is 151.8 meters high. It is the largest single-tower and double-cable-plane steel box girder cable-stayed bridge, with the highest investment of 3.01 billion yuan.

The bridge, which provides a quicker access to Wenchang city from Haikou, will cut drive time from an hour and a half to just 20 minutes. It is expected to promote economic growth of the northern part of Hainan province.

The signing and opening ceremony of construction projects of the Hainan Pilot FTZ held in Haikou


The signing and opening ceremony of construction projects of the Hainan Pilot Free Trade Zone (the third batch) was held in Haikou. The total number of new projects was 131, with a total investment of 47.6 billion yuan and 50 contracted projects with a total investment of 93.5 billion yuan. Since December 29, 2018, Hainan has added 27,000 new market entities, with a year-on-year increase of 35.8%. There are 18 newly opened enterprises in Hainan such as Zhongmian Group (Hainan) Operation Headquarters Co., Ltd., SDIC Trading (Hainan) Co., Ltd., Haikou  Beifa Information Technology Co., Ltd. and Bohai Bank Co., Ltd. Haikou Branch. This year, Hainan will focus on five batches of key projects'construction.

All-night bars given the go-ahead in Hainan


Hainan has received approval from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to establish all-night entertainment venues in key tourism areas, Hainan Daily reported Thursday.

It is hoped the move will help develop the island province into an international hub of tourism and consumption.

China plans to develop Hainan into a major global tourism destination by 2035, according to a plan issued by the National Development and Reform Commission in December 2018.

All-night bars and entertainment venues will be allowed operate in targeted areas in Hainan, the plan said.

This measure however conflicts with China's current regulations on the administration of entertainment venues, which stipulate that they "shall not be open for business from 2am to 8am every day".

To improve tourism and further open up the sector, the provincial tourism and culture authority applied to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to allow entertainment venues remain open all night in a number of areas, which was recently approved by the ministry.

This is expected to help Hainan build international, consumer-focused commercial centers and help the province offer a wide range of cuisine, accommodation, traveling, shopping and entertainment options, and create a world-class tourism destination.
