Press Release announcing the 2020 Stamp Programme (14 October 2019)
The following is from Hong Kong Stamps’ webpage 2020 Stamps Issuing Programme and Introduction:
Looking back on Hong Kong’s amazing journey from a fishing anchorage to an international metropolis, Hongkong Post introduces the Hong Kong Past and Present Series. Victoria Harbour is one of our most acclaimed landmarks. Together with the modern towers on both sides, it comprises Hong Kong’s captivating and unique skyline. The contrast of its past and present underscores Hong Kong’s remarkable transformation. This issue of four stamps illustrates Hong Kong’s changes over the decades with historical and contemporary photographs. Comprising se-tenant stamps and tête-bêche pairs as well, this attractive issue presents the scenic beauty of Victoria Harbour.
