According to info received by StampNews.com Pos Malaysia issued special stamps and philatelic collections in honour of Malaysia's chairmanship of Asean and its establishment.
In line with the chairmanship theme, three commemorative postage stamp designs ‒ Our People, Our Community and Our Vision ‒ priced at 60sen, 80sen and RM1.20 respectively, will be released.
Pos Malaysia hopes the public will take this opportunity to get this momentous collection from the branch nearest to them.
For Pos Malaysia, Malaysia's chairmanship is timely as it was elected the new chairman of ASEANPOST, a grouping of postal service providers in the Asean region for a period of two years beginning this year.
The election was held in November last year at the 21st Asean Pos Business Meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The election shows the recognition for Pos Malaysia's contribution and leadership in the development of ASEANPOST.
