Wuzhishan was the center of Hainan Island for a long time, not only in a geographical sense. In 1949, the first Communist party base was set up in Wuzhishan with Wang Guo Xing as the leader of the Li people and as the general director of the Party on Hainan. In 1955, the first local government of Hainan Island was set up in Wuzhishan and Wuzhishan became the capital of Hainan Island. The capital Ha moved to Haikou in 1988 when Hainan Island was part of Guangdong Province, not directly under the control of Central Government. In 1988, the Central Government set up the largest special economic zone at the time. It was Hainan Island with Haikou as its capital, then coming under the direct control of the Central Government, thus becoming a separate Province of the People’s Republic of China.

Wuzhishan is a new name. Before 2001, this place was called Tongza which in local Li Language means “Rice field on the top of a mountain surrounded by rainforest .” The Li Language expressed the location of the community. In 2001, the local government changed the name from Tongza to Wuzhishan because of Wuzhishan Mountain which is the highest mountain on Hainan Island and also a major symbol of the Island.
