HK to stage stamps exhibition to mark 55th anniversary of founding of PRC

Hongkong Post will participate in the "55th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China" Chinese Stamps Exhibition, Acting Postmaster General Kingsley Li announced Friday.

The exhibition, to be held from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3 at Sha Tin Town Hall Exhibition Gallery, aims to promote philately to the general public, Li said.

It is organized by The Commercial Press (HK) Limited and co-sponsored by Hongkong Post, Macao Post and the China Philatelic Association.

"We are delighted to support this meaningful exhibition," Li said, adding that "Hongkong Post will display artwork of its special stamps and a cachet will be introduced to commemorate this exhibition".

Stamp products with China themes have attracted increasing interest from Hong Kong philatelists. The special stamps issue on the "Centenary of the Birth of Deng Xiaoping" launched in August has received great acclaim here.
