A ceremony on the issuance of commemorative philatelic items was held at the Xining Railway offices in northwest China's Qinghai Province on July 1 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Qinghai-Tibet railway.
China Post Qinghai designed and developed the series that includes commemorative envelopes, folders and stamped postcards. The branch reached an agreement with the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Co. on the sale of 1,000 sets of commemorative folders and stamped postcards about the railway.
The series of products were well received at the ceremony and sold out quickly, generating revenues of more than 70,000 yuan (U.S. $10,468).
The ceremony was supported by China Post Qinghai and the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Co., and organized by China Post Xining and the Qinghai Philatelic Society.
