In order to show an open, real and comprehensive Hainan Free Trade Port to the world, hinews.cn, a subsidiary of the Hainan Daily Press Group, has specially set up the Hainan International Media Center (HIMC) and formed a team of "Overseas Communication Officers", to share the stories of Hainan to the world.

As of December 29, the Hainan International Media Center has appointed 46 "Overseas Communication Officers" from 32 countries such as the United States, Russia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Japan, and Australia.

They expressed their willingness to actively participate in the activities of "accelerating the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port" as the Overseas Communication Officers" with their expertise in respective fields, enhancing Hainan's international influence and contributing to the construction and development of Hainan Free Trade Port.

The construction of Hainan Free Trade Port has attracted more and more overseas talents and foreign-funded enterprises to enter Hainan. Thus, it is becoming necessary for Hainan people to learn a foreign language. In April of this year, Randy Floyd from the United States registered Haikou Tongbang Chang Foreign Language Education Consulting Co., to help local international schools recruit outstanding foreign teachers, and provide training to foreign teachers and Chinese employees to improve their communication skills.

"With the new identity of Overseas Communication Officer, I hope that more excellent English teachers and first-class education projects can be attracted to Hainan through my own efforts,  bringing more diverse and abundant bilingual education to Hainan," said Randy Floyd. He praised Hainan's visa-free policy for 59 countries and hoped that Hainan could further simplify the procedures for foreigners to enter Hainan and provide more convenience for foreign talents.

The construction of Hainan Free Trade Zone and Free Trade Port has brought broad space for the development of urban architectural design. After the settlement in Hainan Unican Science and Technology Innovation Institute, the Dennis Design Studio undertook more and more design projects. Dennis Nikolaev, founder of the studio, is also an Overseas Communication Officer of HIMC, expressing that he is willing to promote international design projects and concepts in Hainan, and to build more buildings in line with the orientation of green development in Hainan.

Trukhina Anna, vice-general manager of Hainan Hesi Zhongmei Culture Co., Ltd., is one of the Overseas Communication Officers in Hainan. She indicated that the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port has brought many opportunities for Russians to study, exchange, invest, and start a business. She is also willing to build a bridge for the friendly cooperation between the two sides, and share the good policies and opportunities for development in Hainan to her friends in Russia.

Hainan has more than one million returned overseas Chinese and their relatives, as well as over 3.9 million overseas Hainanese, and they will become an important force in the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port. As an "Overseas Communication Officer", Chen Jing, president of the Hainanese Fellowship in Montreal, Canada, stated that she has a greater responsibility to promote the construction opportunities of her hometown, Hainan, to Canadian international platforms and overseas Chinese communities, contributing to enhancing Hainan's global exposure.
