According to new plans, the district will be developed into a new area in South China that is green, innovative, and livable, with relatively strong competitiveness in deep-sea and “Nanfan” agricultural tech industries.

Nanfan agricultural tech

Nanfan agricultural technology refers to the technology used by agricultural experts from all over the country to conduct research and engage in seed breeding in colder seasons from September to May in tropical island.

The project site will cover an area of 26.14 square kilometers, starting from the Hainan West Line Railway in the east and stretching to the Yazhou Bay coastline in the west; and running from Gangkou Road in the south to the Ningyuan River in the north.

The district will consist of five functional zones, namely, a deep-sea tech cluster, a “Nanfan” agricultural tech cluster, a college town, Nanshan Port, and an integrated service zone.

The deep-sea tech cluster will rely on deep-sea marine tech industries to lure talent and carry out scientific research in marine industrial technological innovation.

The “Nanfan” agricultural tech cluster will rely on “Nanfan” agricultural high-tech industry to develop into a demonstration zone for the promotion of city-industry integration.

The college town will be home to a number of educational institutions dedicated to marine scientific education and research.

The scope of the plan also includes the construction of a slow-traffic sightseeing system that will allow visitors to appreciate the region from a different perspective, in harmony with the natural environment.

Six functional pubic parks, including Binhe Park, Binhai Park, Guanhai Park, Tonghai Park, Central Park, and Nanfan Park will be built in the region to maintain the balance between urbanization and nature.
