The 7th Congress of All-China Philatelic Federation was held in Beijing on April 25, 2013. The souvenir sheet was issued to celebrate the grand conference among philatelic circles. The main picture shows cultural relics excavated from Liye Ancient Town in Longshan County of western Hunan Province, including bamboo slips from the Qin Dynasty (221 BC- 206 BC), daubs and stamp labels. A number of archives of Qin Dynasty's Qianling County were found at Liye Ruins. These archives are of high value in researching ancient China’s early postal system. The words "Qianling yi you xing Dongting" (the expressed mail from Qianling County, today's Liye, to Dongting Prefecture) on the Qin slips are regarded as China’s earliest letter; the daub by "Youyang Cheng Seal" is used as a mark to seal the letter; and the stamp label with notes on the package is considered the earliest one in China.

China National Philatelic Corporation will issue a FDC and a commemorative cancellation respectively.
