The Beijing Expo 2019 “Hunan Day” launched a promotional event on Changde on July 8. Six tourism, cultural, and healthcare projects were presented, with a total investment of 11.75 billion CNY. Eight cultural and tourism cooperation agreements were contracted through the event. 
 
The event raised its curtain with a Changde silk string performance “Changde is a good place”. The six promoted projects included a cultural and recreational complex, and the Shimen Baiyun Mountain ecological tourism resort. Three of the eight contracted agreements are related to Taohuayuan, including an internet-based ecological town, and cultural creation serial cooperation. 
 
Taohuayuan, literally the peach blossom land, is highlighted at the expo. The fireworks show at the opening ceremony was themed “Peach Blossom Land”. The 2,450-mu (16 ha.) Hunan Outdoor Exhibition Park, with the theme of “Encountering Hunan-Taohuayuan”, is based on Taohuayuan Scenic Area in Changde, the original site depicted in Tao Yuanming's essay “Peach Blossom Land”. It presents people’s expectation for peaceful life, and pursuit for harmony between nature and human being. As of now, the park has received nearly 300,000 trips by both Chinese and foreign visitors.
