New submarine cables activated to power China's resort island

China's tropical island province Hainan has activated new submarine cables to increase the stability of the island's power grid.

The four 500-kv ultra-high voltage cables across the Qiongzhou Strait are 32-km-long each and have no in-between joint, according to the China Southern Power Grid Co. Ltd. (CSG).

They have added to the three cables that had linked Hainan and the mainland province of Guangdong since 2009, and will increase power supply to Hainan by 600,000 kilowatts, the CSG said.

"Its operation can alleviate the island's strained power supply amid the recent intense heat, increase the grid's stability, and improve the island's business environment," said Cheng Qiyun, deputy general manager of the Hainan branch of CSG.

Sanya, a resort coastal city at the southern tip of South China's Hainan island, will explore establishing tax policies and legal systems compatible with the China (Hainan) Free Trade Zone and Free Trade Port with Chinese characteristics, to attract more overseas Chinese to make investment, work and live in Sanya, according to the city's top official.

Sanya welcomes overseas Chinese from all over the world to gather to jointly build the Hainan Free Trade Zone (FTZ) and free trade port, and share development opportunities in Hainan, said Tong Daochi, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Hainan Provincial Committee and secretary of the CPC Sanya Municipal Committee.

He made the remarks on Saturday when meeting representatives of the 2019 Sanya Conference on Overseas Chinese Investment, Innovation and Pioneering, which closed on Sunday.

Tong said Hainan has attracted 3.9 million overseas Chinese who have made an important contribution to social and economic development over the years.

"And now Hainan needs more support from the overseas Chinese community, as it is making every effort to build a free trade zone and free trade port," Tong said.

He noted Sanya is creating a legal, internationalized and convenient business environment and upgrading local infrastructure. It also will explore the establishment of tax policies and legal systems that are appropriate to the FTZ and free trade port to attract more overseas Chinese to make investment in Sanya, and ensure they enjoy work and life in the tropical city as well.

The conference also witnessed the signing of 10 projects, including a flower tourism demonstration park, an internet hospital highlighting artificial intelligence, a cruise port theme park, a demonstration base for Hainan-Taiwan tropical agriculture cooperation and a movie making project.

A total of 29 Fortune Global 500-listed conglomerates have decided to launch businesses in Sanya, which is at the same latitude of 18 degrees north as Hawaii, and 23 corporations, including China Minmetals and Sunshine Insurance Group, have registered their regional or business section headquarters in the tropical city, according to the local government.
