Dai said that at present, the Hainan Free Trade Port (FTP) is making strides in a rapid and steady manner, and the rule-based, internationalized and facilitating business environment has continued to improve, attracting great attention from the international community and settlement of domestic and foreign companies one after another. The development of the FTP brings broad space for cooperation between Hainan and India.
