Location & Resources

Located on the banks of the Wanquan River in Boao Town, Qionghai City, and near the core area of the Boao Forum for Asia, the Hainan Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pioneer District is surrounded by convenient transportation facilities. Adjacency to Boao airport and high-speed railways and expressways makes the pilot zone easy to access, and the star-level resort hotel cluster, local hot springs, natural heritage and cultural tourism spots such as Yudaitan, Dongyu Island and the permanent site of the Boao Forum for Asia give the pilot zone a charm that attracts people from around the world. Guests are welcomed and can enjoy life here in a beautiful and comfortable environment.

The pilot zone is well supplied with medical equipment bonded warehouses, business, government and public services, and is dedicated to providing foreign investors, medical enterprises, staff, physicians, experts, and tourists with high quality medical care, accommodation, catering, conferences, shopping, leisure and entertainment, among other services.

Developing Positions

The pilot zone focuses on international high-end medical tourism services and international cutting-edge medical science and technology, and aims to become an international medical technology service integrated zone.

It develops key medical and health care industries including franchise health care, health management, care and rehabilitation, medical beauty and anti-aging, and international medical tourism.

So far it has attracted high-end medical tourism service companies and cutting-edge medical technologies domestically and abroad. It is now emerging as an international medical technology service industry cluster, and has been named by Premier Li keqiang as "the Second Movement of the Boao Forum for Asia".


The effects of preferential policies have begun to emerge. First, patients can receive the world's best and latest medical services in the pilot zone. Second, it is allowable for foreign medical experts to carry out diagnosis and treatment activities. Third, drugs and devices listed overseas but unlisted domestically can be used. Fourth, patients in medical institutions in the pilot zone are allowed to leave with imported drug for reasonable self-dosage.

In addition, Boao Super Hospital has adopted the "1 + X" cluster medical model, already had 17 academicians and industry experts teams signed on, and has carried out dozens of “National First Case” pioneered surgeries at home.

What’s more, it has already signed strategic cooperation agreements, MOUs and letters of intent with 15 international pharmaceutical manufacturers, and more in-depth and extensive cooperation using more innovative medicine and devices can be expected in the future.

Last but not least, the pilot zone is the first and the only area carrying out real-world data application in the Chinese mainland.


The Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone has been granted nine preferential policies, which can be summarized as “four special permissions”:

Franchise Medical Care: licensed access to medical technology, medical talents, medical devices and drugs;

Franchise Research: implementation of research projects of advanced medical technologies such as stem cell clinical research;

Franchise Operation: eased examination and approval for some health care industries, and permission of foreign capital to enter the zone and operate medical centers;

Franchise International Communication: introduction of International Exchange medical organizations and undertaking of medical conferences.

The pilot zone will keep working with international pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturers to introduce high quality medical and health resources. Investors are highly welcome to contact us.
