Hainan Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone

Hainan Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone is a world-leading green city project which integrates medical services, wellness, pharmaceuticals, scientific research, rehabilitation, senior care, and tourism in an area dedicated to energy conservation and environmental protection.  It is located at the eastern side of Hainan Province (an island located off the coast of Southern China), one of China’s top tourism destinations, having received nearly 48,000 international and domestic visitors in 2014. The project is an initiative of Hainan People’s Government and its goal is to become a world-class medical and wellness destination before the end of this decade.

The pilot zone covers over 20 square kilometers and is characterized by a beautiful ecological environment, pleasant climate and abundant natural resources. The crystal-clear Wanquan River moves placidly through the center of the project site, forming a unique “water-island-farmland” that is ideal for leisure and tourism.

The pilot zone offers international investors a number of preferential policies including:

Fast-track approval for new drugs, technology and medical devices
Extending up to three years the time foreign physicians are allowed to practice medicine
Allowing 100% foreign direct investment and ownership in hospitals
Reduction of tariffs on certain medical devices and equipment
The goal is for the Pilot Zone to become a leading medical and wellness destination in the next 7-10 years with first-class healthcare infrastructure and services. It is expected that in the next several years, 10% of overnight visitors to the Pilot Zone will be medical tourists, accounting for 20% of Hainan’s tourism industry revenue.
