Hongkong Post will launch a special stamp sheetlet and related philatelic products with the theme "Hong Kong · International Legal Hub" on September 17 (Thursday).
To consolidate and enhance Hong Kong's status as an international centre for legal, deal-making and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region, the HKSAR Government offers space in the West Wing of the former Central Government Offices, a Grade 1 historic building now known as Justice Place, and the former French Mission Building, a declared monument nearby, to accommodate offices of local, regional and international law-related organisations committed to building and promoting Hong Kong's image as an international legal hub.
The stamp sheetlet presents the complex of the Legal Hub against the backdrop of an image of the globe, with Hong Kong's prime location in the centre of the Asia-Pacific region marked. Four major areas of services on international law, dispute resolution, arbitration and mediation provided at the Legal Hub are set out on the side for adornment. Its design introduces to the public the advantages of Hong Kong in this aspect.
Starting from September 17, this set of special stamps and associated philatelic products, including a stamp sheetlet, a presentation pack and a serviced first day cover will be placed on sale at post offices. A first day cover has been put on sale from September 3.
Information about this special stamp issue and associated philatelic products is available on the Hongkong Post Stamps website (stamps.hongkongpost.hk) or the Hongkong Post mobile app.
