HAIKOU, September 1. /TASS/. Jiangdong New District innovation zone in Haikou (northern Hainan province) plans to draw more foreign investors to develop the local aviation cluster, the Haikou Daily reported.
According to the newspaper, the island's authorities are offering foreign companies to participate in big logistics and foreign trade projects related to air transportation. In order to do so, the provincial leadership is constantly developing new effective measures.
