This paper presents a new non-local expanding flow for convex closed curves in the Euclidean plane which increases both the perimeter of the evolving curves and the enclosed area. But the flow expands the evolving curves to a finite circle smoothly if they do not develop singularity during the evolving process. In addition, it is shown that an additional assumption about the initial curve will ensure that the flow exists on the time interval . Meanwhile, a numerical experiment reveals that this flow may blow up for some initial convex curves.
