Up to 87 countries and regions have signed up for the 2019 FIP General World Stamp Exhibition in Wuhan from June 11 to June 17, the State Post Bureau (SPB) said on May 14.
 
The exhibition will display 4,700 framed sets of stamps, 2,500 of which are from overseas exhibitors and others are from domestic exhibitors, hitting the record high in terms of the exhibition scale.
 
Notably, philatelists and museums from home and abroad will offer dozens of rare and treasured stamps. Collections of stamps that the People's Republic of China has issued since its founding 70 years ago will also be showcased.
 
China joined the FIP, the international association for stamp collectors and philatelists, in 1983 and hosted the world stamp exhibition in 1999 and 2009. It will be the third time that China hosts the world stamp exhibition. (hubei.gov.cn by Ruan Xinqi)
