Taipei stamp show will be organized in Taiwan from October 21-26, 2016. This event is the world philatelic exhibition PHILATAIPEI 2016, also held under the patronage of the FIP and organized by Chunghwa Post Co., the Chinese Taipei Philatelic Federation and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council. There are representatives of international philatelic organizations from 90 countries participating in this event. Among other reasons, PHILATAIPEI 2016 is remarkable because, during the exhibition, the FIP will also hold its 74th congress.
On the souvenir sheet, KEP has decided to depict a typical animal of the Taiwan region – the Formosan Black Bear (Ursus thibetanus formosanus). The bear stands against a background of wonderful forest scenery, which explains why this island was once known in Europe as “Formosa”, or “Beautiful”.
