Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ” uninhabited island”.
Hainan province updated a regulation on the development of small uninhabited islands recently, aiming to better protect the islands and standardize approval procedures.
The regulation requires any entity or individual wanting to develop uninhabited islands to first submit an application, development plans and project appraisal reports to the ocean authorities for review and approval.
The regulation sets a limit of 15 years for aquaculture uses, 25 years for tourism and entertainment, 30 years for salt and mining industries, 40 years for public welfare purposes and 50 years for ports, shipyards and other construction projects.
Did you get it?
