China's southernmost island province of Hainan said Tuesday that it would phase out sales of traditional oil-fueled vehicles throughout the province by 2030.

Hainan governor Shen Xiaoming made the announcement at the ongoing 2019 World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in the coastal town of Boao.

The province will promote the use of new energy vehicles (NEVs) and has set specific targets.

Starting this year, all vehicles added or replaced in the public service sector, including government cars and buses, will use clean energy. By 2030, the sales of oil-fueled vehicles will not be available throughout the province.

Shen said Hainan would speed up the construction of charging facilities to meet the needs of new energy vehicles. By 2025, the ratio of electric cars to charging poles will be brought down to two to one.

Statistics show that the province has built more than 4,600 charging facilities for electric cars. At the end of 2018, the province had about 23,000 NEVs, 1.8 percent of the total number of the province's automobiles.

More than 1,500 guests from over 10 countries including government officials, academic experts, and industry elites gathered at the international event to share their insights, discuss the development trends of new energy vehicles, and seek out cooperation opportunities.  

Concentrating on the transformation and upgrading of the global automotive industry, as well as the continuous improvement of the ecological environment, the three-day event pools wisdom from global experts and industry elites, explores new innovations in NEV technologies, policies and business modes, as well as clarifies the direction for NEV industrial upgrading. 

The congress will showcase Hainan's achievements in the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Zone and Free Trade Port to the world. It will also bridge Hainan with the world's first-tier resources in the NEV field, and promote the transformation and upgrading of Hainan's automobile industry.
