  South China Sea Bibo, Silk Road sail shadow. As an important sea station on the ancient Silk Road, Hainan has witnessed the prosperity of the Silk Road on the sea.
Today, the “Hainan-ASEAN” route has a 10,000-ton wave, and the “air corridor” connecting the world has begun to see scale, and the international “friend circle” has been expanding. Hainan’s “One Belt, One Road” fulcrum has become increasingly prominent, and important progress has been made in opening up a new pattern.
  Open the flight route, closely connected to the world
  The vehicles in the port area shuttled and the giant wheels on the sea were interlaced. In Yangpu Port in March, there was a busy scene.
  At the end of December last year, the "Hainan-ASEAN" liner service opened its first voyage from Yangpu Port, which opened up the sea passage of Hainan's direct navigation to Southeast Asia.
Fu Chuanyu, general manager of Haipu Branch of Hainan COSCO Shipping Container Transportation Co., Ltd. said that relying on the new fulcrum of the new international land and sea trade channel, Yangpu Port has started 67 flights this year, accumulating the volume of cargo and completing container throughput. They increased by 21.6% and 20.7% respectively.
Interconnection is the meridian and important connotation of the “Belt and Road” construction. In recent years, Hainan Province has continuously woven the shipping routes, and has formed a layout of foreign trade routes linking Southeast Asia and radiating Asia and Europe.
  At the same time, Hainan actively builds “airborne roads” and continuously expands international routes, connecting Hainan with the world.
  "From Hainan, the four-hour flight time can cover about 47% of the world's 21 countries and regions, and the eight-hour flight time covers Asia, Oceania, Europe, Africa and other 59 countries and regions, accounting for 67% of the world. Population.” Wang Sheng, director of the Hainan Provincial Foreign Affairs Working Committee Office, said that Hainan has a unique advantage in building a four-hour and eight-hour airline economic circle.
According to reports, Hainan opened and encrypted direct air routes to popular cities in Southeast Asia last year, and the international routes expanded to 74, and strive to open 100 international routes by 2020.
  The encryption of sea and air routes, frequent economic and trade exchanges and humanities exchanges have opened up a new pattern of opening up to the outside world in Hainan. In 2018, the total import and export volume of Hainan's goods increased by 20.8% year-on-year, 11.1 percentage points higher than the national average; the number of overnight visitors reached 1,263,600, an increase of 12.9%.
Take the platform bridge and expand the international "friends circle"
  The 2019 Annual Meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia will be held from March 26th to 29th. The beautiful town of Boao is welcoming guests from all over the world.
  “Hainan grew up with the Boao Forum for Asia in the process of the Service Guarantee Forum and shared the harvest.” Wang Sheng said that by making full use of the advantages of the forum’s home diplomatic platform, Hainan has continuously expanded its opening to the outside world and established exchanges with countries and regions along the “Belt and Road”. A new bridge of cooperation.
  The 4th China-ASEAN Governors' Dialogue has been successfully held, filling the gap between China and the ASEAN local government. Last year, the dialogue advocated the establishment of the “Cruise Travel City Alliance along the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road” to promote the common development of cruise tourism. Hainan has opened 14 cruise routes to Vietnam, the Philippines and other South China countries (or cities).
  Through the platform of the Boao Forum, Hainan has planned nearly 100 games of Hainan theme activities in recent years, and created the “China-ASEAN Governors Dialogue”, “21st Century Maritime Silk Road Island Economic Sub-Forum”, “South China Sea Cooperation Sub-Forum” and “Chinese Merchants”. The Leaders and Think Tank Roundtables and other platforms for external exchanges actively participate in regional exchanges and cooperation.
  With the platform and brand advantages of Boao Forum, Hainan's international “friend circle” is getting bigger and bigger. Hainan has signed good intentions with 11 local provinces and cities along the 10 countries along the “Belt and Road”, and the number of international friendship cities has also increased to 59. The provincial-level friendship city ranks in the forefront of the country.
  “The number of islands in the city accounted for half of the total.” Wang Sheng said that Hainan will continue to use the “friend circle” resources of the global island economy to provide important international public goods for the development of the island economy.
Go out and introduce to deepen cooperation and build the future
  Since ancient times, Hainan has been a supply port and a transit point for Chinese and Western merchant ships. The cultural relics left on the island and the reclaimed South China Sea cultural relics contain a long history of the ancient Silk Road.
Writing the “One Belt, One Road” Xinhuazhang has become an important opening-up gateway for the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. This is the historical mission given to Hainan in the new era.
Hainan has taken the lead in formulating the five-year action plan for participating in the “One Belt and One Road” construction of foreign exchange and cooperation, and strengthened the overall planning of the “Belt and Road” construction by strengthening the top-level design. In 2018, the "China (Hainan) Free Trade Pilot Area Overall Plan" issued by the State Council provided guidelines for promoting cooperation between Hainan and the "Belt and Road" participating countries.
  China (Hainan) International Tropical Agricultural Fair Winter Fair is the only tropical agricultural exhibition in China and an important platform for agricultural exchanges and cooperation in the “Belt and Road” countries. At the 21st Winter Fair held at the end of last year, 138 companies from 34 countries and regions brought 400 products to the International Pavilion of the “Belt and Road”, with more than 6,000 domestic and foreign merchants.
Adhere to the "introduction" and "going out" simultaneously, a group of enterprises in Hainan with scientific research and technology and funds frequently carry out foreign economic and trade cooperation with countries along the line, mutual benefit and win-win.
Last year, Haishu Group and the Malaysian Rubber Bureau signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, which will carry out in-depth cooperation in promoting the commercialization of modified rubber asphalt road technology and accelerating the development and application of intelligent rubber cutting equipment.
Wang Renfei, deputy general manager of Haishu Group and chairman of Haijiao Group, said that most of the rubber planting end points in Southeast Asia are small rubber farmers and small farms, and it is difficult to invest in seedling research and development. The research and development results of Haijiao Group can bring greater benefits to rubber companies in Southeast Asia, and the Group itself can also obtain greater market opportunities through cooperation.
  Participating in the “Belt and Road” has injected new vitality into the development of Hainan. In January alone, Hainan’s total import and export volume of “One Belt, One Road” reached 2.62 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 43.5%, accounting for 27.3% of Hainan’s foreign trade import and export.
