Overseas tourists can claim, starting next year, tax refunds at 11 percent of their purchases in pilot shops in southern Hainan Province when leaving China there, a local official said Monday.

The minimum purchase eligible for the tax rebate is 800 yuan (121 U.S. dollars), said Lu Yong, vice director of the Hainan Provincial Bureau of Finance.
