(2) Functions:

★Relying on the Hainan Free Trade Port policy, making full use of the processing, shipping, aviation, tax and other preferential policies, create a characteristic international cold chain logistics system.

★Relying on the special policy advantages of the free trade port, gather international food circulation resources and promote the formation of industrial chain clusters.

★Constructing cold chain food trade center, cold chain big data center, cold chain food exhibition center, cold chain food logistics distribution center, cold chain food processing center, international shipping cold chain logistics center, international aviation cold chain logistics centers, etc.;

2. Planning Site Selection and Land Use Scale

The construction sites are in Haikou, Chengmai and Yangpu. According to current plan, Haikou Airport Economic Zone is to have an area of approximately 3.65 square kilometers for logistics and warehousing industry. Yangpu Development Zone is to have a port logistics area of approximately 15.5 square kilometers. In addition, Chengmai Jinma Modern Logistics Center is to cover approximately 16 square kilometers.

3. Investment scale and construction period

A single project uses about 0.067 square kilometer of land, with an investment of about 500 million RMB. It will be divided into the three phases of start-up period (2020), construction period (2021-2022) and operation period (2023-2030).

4. Goals and Targeted Investors

By 2025, introducing 5-10 cold chain logistics companies, agricultural product and food processing companies into Hainan for project investment and construction, and promote the formation of a high-value-added food, agricultural and sideline products, marine products distribution trade and processing center. By 2030, the Hainan Free Trade Port policy will be fully implemented, and flight and shipping routes will reach most cities in the world. Introduce 15-20 well-known cold chain logistics companies, agricultural product and food processing companies, and establish a cold chain logistics system serving China and covering the world.

5. Analysis of Strengths

(1) Preferential Policies

Hainan will become the largest and most open free trade port of the world, and the only free trade port of mainland China. It will play the role of the gateway for global commodities entering China.

★Zero tariff. According to the "Master Plan for the Construction of Hainan Free Trade Port", "one negative and three positive lists" will be established. The negative list is a zero-tariff negative list for managing the import of self-operated equipment by enterprises, and all goods outside the negative list are tax-free. A positive list is for imported ships and aircraft for commercial use in transportation and tourism, and yachts. A positive list is for all imported raw materials and auxiliary materials consumed in production and processing activities (or in service trade) for production use or in the "two-heads-out" mode. A positive list is for imported goods consumed by residents on the island. All goods in the three positive lists are tax-free. After a special customs supervision zone is constructed for closed operation, goods that are not in the tax list for imported goods and allowed to be imported into the Hainan Free Trade Port will be exempted from import taxes.

★Low tax rate. For encouraged industrial enterprises registered in Hainan Free Trade Port and substantively operating, corporate income tax is levied at a reduced rate of 15%. For high-level talents and talents in short supply who work in Hainan Free Trade Port, the part of their actual personal income tax  exceeding 15% will be exempted.

★The goods produced by enterprises in the encouraged industries that contain no imported materials or contain imported materials with added value of more than 30% (included) processed in the Hainan Free Trade Port enter the mainland are exempted from import tariff when enter the mainland, and value-added tax and consumption tax are not exempted.

(2) Unique Geographical Advantage

Hainan is the southernmost part of China, located in the center of East Asia and Southeast Asia and the junction between China and Southeast Asia. It is also close to the main international shipping channel. It is an important strategic fulcrum of the "One Belt, One Road". A sea, land and air three-dimensional transportation cold chain logistics system can be built to offer services within several hours to the two major markets of China and Southeast Asia.

(3) Application Environment Advantages

Cold chain industry highly matches Hainan industrial development orientation. Hainan has obvious advantages in the fruit and vegetable planting and processing industry and is one of the main exporting provinces in winter. It also has huge growth potential in developing marine economy. The export amounts of tilapia and other marine products are in the top rank in China. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry is one of the 12 main industries in Hainan. The above industries all have a very high degree of integration with cold chain logistics.
