South China's Hainan province has seen large numbers of talented personnel come to the island seeking a bright future since October 2019, when household registration restrictions were eased across the province, with the exception of Sansha.

According to data provided by the Hainan Provincial Public Security Department, between Feb 18 and March 11 this year, the period after Spring Festival, the number of talents moving to Hainan from outside was 8,118, an increase of 148.64 percent year-on-year.

Over the past two years, Hainan has been implementing "A Million Talents Coming to Hainan" strategy, seeking to introduce global talent to boost the growth of Hainan Free Trade Port. It has successively formulated a series of special policies in the areas of household registration, house purchasing, car purchasing, children's education and spousal employment to provide a full coverage of services for talents.

Graduates with a bachelor's degree and who left school less than three years can settle down in Hainan first and then find employment, and thus enjoy the province's talent introduction settlement preferential policies, according to Zheng Qiang, deputy head of Talent Development Department of CPC Hainan Provincial Committee. He added that between April 13, 2018 and the end of last year, Hainan introduced more than 208,000 talented personnel.

The growing number of Hainan's high-quality talents will meet the requirements of high-quality technological industries and thereby achieve economic efficiency, said Ye Guangliang, vice president of Hainan University.

On the other hand, the growth of the talent team will boost demand for Hainan's medical, education, housing and other public resources and modern service industries, which will stimulate the growth of related industries and accelerate the industrial upgrading of Hainan FTP, Ye added.
