Another two berths, each with a 225,000-ton capacity, are close to being completed on Phoenix Island, according to local officials. The construction is a testament to Hainan's ambition to turn Sanya into an Asian Miami, on par with Miami, Florida, in the United States, which is known as the cruise capital of the world.
Over the five years since Xi was elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee at the 18th Party National Congress in November 2012, much has been achieved in economic development, social progress and diplomacy.
The annual tourist capacity of the terminals is expected to reach 1 million by 2020, the governor said. He added that international flights will grow from the current 56 to 100 in three years as two major airports - Haikou Meilan International Airport and Sanya Phoenix International Airport - are expanding. The fifth airport on the island is taking shape on the western coast.
And with the Party, the PLA and the Chinese people united around the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping at its core, there are no problems that cannot be solved, challenges that cannot be overcome and no goal that cannot be attained.
