Hainan to continue optimising business environment

HAIKOU (XINHUA) – South China’s Hainan Province will make continuous efforts to optimise the business environment in the Yangpu Economic Development Zone in a bid to facilitate the construction of the Hainan free trade zone and free trade port with Chinese characteristics.

The process of applying for starting businesses in Yangpu will be shortened to one and a half workdays, according to a press conference yesterday.

Service windows for foreigners will be opened to provide better services for those who need residence and employment permits as well as foreign experts certificates, said the press release.

Favourable measures will also be taken in areas such as investment, construction projects, administrative approvals and financial support for small and micro-sized firms.
