NDO – More than 1,000 valuable stamps are being displayed at an exhibition from May 20-22 at the Hanoi Post Office, 75 Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Hoan Kiem District.
The event, co-organised by the Ministry of Information and Communication and the Vietnam Post Corporation (Vietnam Post), aims to celebrate the election of deputies to the 14th National Assembly (NA) and People’s Councils at all levels for 2016-2021 tenure.
The stamps are expected to help visitors to understand the significance and importance of the election of NA and People’s Councils deputies and the national unity bloc.
In addition, visitors will have a chance to learn more about the development of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh as well as the land, people and seas and islands of Vietnam.
The exhibits not only are valuable documents, presenting numerous milestone in the country’s history, but also significantly contribute to communicating the upcoming election as well as promoting the land, people and cultural identities of Vietnam to international friends.
So far, Vietnam Post has issued 1,067 postage stamp sets, including seven sets with 14 stamps on Vietnamese NA. The first collection on the elections in Vietnam was designed by painter Nguyen Van Khanh and issued on May 3, 1960.
