“I think the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port will benefit overseas investors a lot. I’d like to use an example. The menu has been set, now it’s time for Hainan to think about how to make good-tasting food on this menu and promote it all over the world. This will determine how successful the Free Trade Port project will be in the future,” said David by using an analogy.

David also emphasizes the importance of global talents: “The construction of Hainan Free Trade Port is like Olympics, we need the best athletes around the world to come here and join this.”
