2022 Spring Festival Message


2022 Spring Festival Message

Dai Zhen

Director-General, Foreign Affairs Office of Hainan Province

Now we are in the joyous season of spring again. As the Lunar New Year of the Tiger is drawing near, on behalf of the Foreign Affairs Office of Hainan Province, I would like to extend my New Year greetings and gratitude to you, and to friends who have long been caring about and supporting our work. May you all a happy Spring Festival! 

The year of 2021 marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC), a milestone of great significance in the history of the Party and the nation. In the past year, the Foreign Affairs Office of Hainan Province, with an enterprising spirit, made new achievements in serving the overall diplomacy of the state and facilitating the high-quality development of Hainan Free Trade Port (FTP) under the strong leadership of the CPC Provincial Committee and the Provincial Government. My colleagues and I all feel that 2021 was a long and hard year, but also a year of innovation and good harvest.

We provided all-round services for the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2021, elaborately designed and carried out Hainan-themed activities, and made due contributions to the success of the 1st China International Consumer Products Expo. 

We broke the “separation” caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and conducted a number of multi-level international exchanges both online and face-to-face. We sent out the “voice of Hainan” by introducing to the world preferential policies and development opportunities of the FTP, and presenting fruitful results in our building of the national pilot zone for ecological conservation. Against the backdrop of global pandemic, the worldwide attention for Hainan FTP was on the rise.

We gave full play to our advantages in foreign resources and innovated working mechanisms for foreign affairs. Released as one of the 13th batch of institutional innovation cases of Hainan FTP, the utilization of foreign resources in rural revitalization achieved mutually beneficial results in foreign affairs activities, local development and increase in the income of farmers. 

We made efforts to serve economic development by building bridges for attracting investment and setting up a “foreign affairs + industrial parks” cooperative development mechanism. We assisted in the establishment of a large number of big or promising projects in Hainan, and facilitated Hainan in the joint building of BRI at a higher level through exploring different cooperation routes with key countries of RCEP in key industries. 

We channeled our personnel to grass-roots units to find out problems and crack hard nuts for further development, implemented the online one-stop service for consular affairs, and led the campaign to standardize English signs in key public places in 18 cities and counties (including Yangpu) of the province, helping to create an internationalized, law-based and convenient business environment.

We strived to build a learning-oriented organ and continued to strengthen learning and research through the study of the Party’s history. Activities with different themes and diverse perspectives such as the learning and research group sharing and the news reading were held on a regular basis to promote the understanding of policies, global vision and professional ability of our personnel.

This year, the 20th National Congress and the 8th Hainan Provincial Congress of the CPC will be held. We will work hard and press ahead to make new contributions to the cause of serving the overall national diplomacy and building Hainan FTP according to the arrangements of the CPC Central Committee, the Hainan Provincial Committee and the Provincial Government. 

At present, the BFA Annual Conference 2022 is under preparation. We will provide solid services for the conference following a green and smart approach, and better organize Hainan-themed activities to showcase the achievements and bright prospects of the FTP. In addition to the BFA Annual Conference, we will also host events including the Global Tourism Forum of BFA and the “Ambassadors Visiting the FTP”. We will try to set up a comprehensive evaluation index system for the opening up of Hainan FTP, start a new round of campaign to standardize English signs in public places, continue to improve the foreign language environment of the whole province, break new ground in international economic cooperation, actively advance people-to-people exchanges, and tell well Hainan’s stories in the new era.

The Spring Festival for the year of the tiger is approaching. Tiger is a symbol of bravery and strength. Let us be on our mettle to finish every task with high quality and embrace a busy and fulfilling new year!
