Since the Chinese central government proposed the complete closure and operation of Hainan Island, the province has been gradually preparing for this initiative, which is planned to start at the end of 2025. After the closure, Hainan will implement a "first-line opening, second-line control, and free movement within the island" system for the import and export management of goods. This will promote economic exchanges between Hainan and the world, optimise the industrial structure, and drive economic development. The closure will also facilitate the entry and exit of residents and tourists, as well as economic and trade activities, thereby improving the quality of life and the tourism experience. The health and wellness tourism industry will become a pillar of Hainan's economy.
