The Red Expo is a red tourism-themed exposition, which has been held alternately by Jiangxi and Hunan provinces since 2019. In recent years, the two provinces have signed the "Red Tourism Cooperation Framework Agreement in Hunan-Jiangxi Border Areas"; established the Red Culture and Tourism Community in the Hunan-Jiangxi Border Areas; and took the lead in advocating collaborative development of red tourism throughout the country. Both sides have worked together to develop red tourism products, carry out red education and training, and build red tourism brands, to jointly explore a new path for regional coordinated development between the two provinces.
