Hong Kong Post Tuesday issued special stamps marking the "Development of the Pearl River Delta Region", focusing on the speedy development of the region, particularly in the aspects of infrastructure, logistics, tourism and business.
At the issuing ceremony, Hong Kong Postmaster General, Allan Chiang, said that communication and delivery is essential to the region's sustained growth, hence Hong Kong Post, Macao Post and Guangdong Postal Bureau have together played a supporting role in the Greater Pearl River Delta Region's (GPRD) development.
"Over 50 percent of the outbound letters and parcels for the mainland are destined to Guangdong Province and Guangzhou has become the processing hub of our mainland-bound mail, air and surface alike. As for mail to and from Macao, the majority of it comes to Hong Kong for processing and distribution," said Chiang.
Off and on, new added-valued services have been jointly rolled out among the three postal administrations for the GPRD region and the rest of the mainland to boost trading activities, Chiang said.
"We are committed to grasping every opportunity to step up co-operation with every single mainland postal administration for new businesses and new services and have our corporate statement ' Linking People, Delivering Business' fully realized," Chiang added.
