An exhibition of stamps to commemorate both the 70th anniversaries of victory in the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the Victory of Anti-Fascist War in 1945 was officially launched by the State Post Bureau, the China Post Group Corporation and the All-China Philatelic Federation (ACPF) at a ceremony at the headquarters of the China National Post and Postage Stamp Museum in Beijing on the morning of June 5, 2015.

The three-month exhibition is expected to circulate in 21 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities across the country by the end of September. A total of 3,200 stamps, frankings and related pictures will be on show to the public.

"The circuit exhibition aims to highlight the historic significance of the "Victory", promote the great spirit and courageous perseverance of the Chinese people, raise the public's awareness of national cohesion and solidarity, and showcase to the whole world China's unswerving determination on its path of peaceful development and safeguarding global peace," Vice Director of the State Post Bureau Zhao Xiaoguang said.

Vice-President of the China Post Group Corporation Li Pizheng said the corporation would issue further postcards, postage seals, posts and other products related to the celebration of the 70th anniversaries in coming months.

The first stop of the exhibition was in Beijing on June 5-7, recreating fully the picture of the greatness shown by the Chinese people under the firm leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in the eight-year long fight against Japanese military invasion.

Attending the launch ceremony in Beijing were the Vice Chairperson of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), Minister of the International Department of the Central Committee of the CPC and Honorary Chairperson of the ACPF Wang Jiarui, Director of the State Post Bureau Ma Junsheng, President of the China Post Group Corporation Li Guohua, and officials from government bodies.

China was the first country in the world to fight against Fascist forces when Japanese troops began invading northeast China on September 18, 1931. A full-scale Japanese invasion began on July 7, 1937. However, China never caved in, pinning down more than half a million better-armed Japanese troops, men and material that would otherwise have threatened India and even the United States. Archives reveal in the eight years from 1937 onwards, allied forces killed and wounded approximately 1.95 million Japanese soldiers, about 70 percent of which took place on Chinese battlefields. By the end of World War II, more than 35 million Chinese had been killed or wounded during the course of Japan's aggression.
