Pingtan has multiple advantages in resources, policies and transportation. The resource advantages can be summarized as '7S': Sunshine, Sand, Sea, Stone, Strait, Shopping and Sport. The policy advantages can be seen from its position strategy as a comprehensive pilot region, a free trade region and international tourism islands altogether. It is the only place in China that enjoys three different preferential policies at the same time. In terms of transportation, it both has extensive networks within islands, and two strait bridges to reach the outside of the islands. On maritime transportation, there are freighters such as Haixia and Lina sailing along the golden seaway back and forth between Taiwan and Pingtan. Besides, there is another strait bridge on the northern side of the islands called Fuping Railway Strait Bridge. It is 16 kilometers in length, aiming to be used for both highways and railways, to be completed by 2018. By then, it only takes 30 minutes to reach Changle Airport. Other planned alternative airports will soon be under construction as well.
As the approval of the Plan, Pingtan has become the second officially recognized international tourism islands after Hainan in China. It is embracing new great development opportunities.
