Ruan Zongze, executive vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies, said that Xi's speech not only focused on the Chinese people, but also stressed the importance of creating benefits for the whole of humankind.
Over the past five years, Hainan's GDP growth averaged 8.1 percent, reaching 446.25 billion yuan ($70.82 billion) in 2017.
"President Xi's re-election is also a positive sign of China's continued prosperity, going into a new era that will be great for the world both in terms of stability and economic development," he said.
Many opportunities have come Boao's way through the years as Hainan has worked to develop tourism as a pillar industry. The province rose to become an international tourism destination and in 2016 became the nation's first pilot zone for integrated tour planning across the whole province, a kind of supply-side reform in the tourism sector.
"The Belt and Road Initiative emphasizes synergy rather than replacement or confrontation," he said. The synergy between China and other countries or international organizations will have the effect of "one plus one is greater than two".
