About Us

Established in 2019, the Hainan International Communication Network (HICN) is the largest multilingual web portal in Hainan, currently serving audiences in English and Russian in both Hainan and across the globe. Serving as an advocate of the Hainan Free Trade Port, HICN broadcasts news and stories about what is happening here in Hainan to the rest of the world, revealing the rapid advances occurring in the island’s economy, trade, tourism, culture, and society.

Here at HICN, we are incredibly proud of our dedicated team of multi-lingual editors and our affiliation with Hainan Overseas Communication Officers from 33 countries or districts worldwide, including Russia, the USA, the Republic of Belarus, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Japan, Australia, Poland, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines, Jamaica, Singapore, Thailand, and more. Regular audio and video programs including Expats in Hainan, This is Hainan, and The Voice of Hainan have made deep, lasting impressions on HICN's target audience. With a strong presence on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Linked In, and VK, HICN has built a multi-channel network reaching audiences around the world.

The news platform of choice to track the progress and innovation of the Hainan Free Trade Port and a window into the island’s culture, history, and local customs, HICN is the primary channel facilitating communication between Hainan and the rest of the world, and also supplies Hainan news briefs for use by international news media.
