Commemorative stamps launched

THE acting CEO of Post Fiji Ltd (PFL) Isaac Mow says having Fijian commemorative stamps on letters and parcels sent overseas is an indirect form of marketing.

"Promoting the cultural diversity in Fiji and most importantly, it promotes Fiji as a nation," he said.

Mr Mow made this comments during the launch of commemorative stamps to mark the Chinese New Year, the 'Year of the Dog'.

"There are four different stamps for the Year of the Dog stamp issue; each has a different value and image. The different values assigned by Post Fiji for the stamps are 38 cents, 50 cents, $1.04 cents and $10," Mr Mow said.

He said these values were high in demand for letters and parcel postages locally and to countries like Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States.

The PFL acting CEO said PFL was again privileged to partner with the China Cultural Centre in event.

Xiangfu Deng, the China Cultural Centre director, said in 2016 and 2017 they had successfully partnered with PFL to launch the 'Year of Monkey' and 'Year of Rooster' stamps and this year they were again launching the 'Year of the Monkey' stamps.

"I believe it is again a set of stamps of great collection value, aesthetic value and artistic value," Mr Deng said.

The launch of the Year of the Monkey stamps was officiated jointly by the Chinese Ambassador Qian Bo, the permanent secretary for Education, Heritage and Arts, Alison Burchell, Mr Deng and FPL's Mr Mow.
