Press Release announcing the 2020 Stamp Programme (14 October 2019)

The following is from Hong Kong Stamps’ webpage 2020 Stamps Issuing Programme and Introduction:

Qinghai Hoh Xil is the subject for World Heritage in China Series No. 9. Located in the north – east of the Qinghai – Tibetan Plateau, this site was inscribed on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List as natural heritage in 2017. Its distinctive geographical and climatic settings have nurtured a unique ecology and rich biodiversity. The stamp sheetlet showcases the natural grandeur of Hoh Xil and wild species of Class I state protection recorded there, such as Tibetan antelope, wild yak, Tibetan wild ass and golden eagle. For the first time ever, the sheetlet is affixed with a “widescreen” stamp to underscore the theme.
