Author:Chen Jia Ma Zhiping  Source:China Daily   

The duty-free policy in China's southernmost province of Hainan will be further eased from December, to boost tourism and domestic consumption as the island targets to be a free-trade port.

Domestic and overseas tourists, as well as island residents can make duty-free purchases if they spend no more than 30,000 yuan ($4,315) per person within one year, up from the current limit of 16,000 yuan, the Ministry of Finance said in a statement on its website. There will be no restrictions on purchase frequency.

Some medical apparatus and instruments will be included on the duty-free product list, including hearing aids, visual training machines, and household respiratory support equipment. Every consumer can buy a maximum of two of these items each time, according to the statement.
