This is part of new reform and opening-up measures announced by Xi for Hainan at a gathering here to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the founding of Hainan Province and the Hainan Special Economic Zone.

The State Council, China's cabinet, gave Hainan permission to run a pilot duty-free program in April 2011 in an effort to make the island a world-class tourist destination.

Currently Hainan has two duty-free shops, with one in the provincial capital of Haikou and the other in the resort city of Sanya on the southern tip of Hainan Island.
