China State Post Bureau announced today in Beijing that the China 2016 Asian international stamps exhibition will kick off early next month in Nanning, capital city of South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

The exhibition includes a stamp competition as well as cultural and economic exchange events among different countries. Organizers disclosed that more than dozens of countries and regions will take part.

Guangxi is the hub that links China and Southeast Asia. Experts said the event is part of efforts to promote the Belt and Road Initiative.

"Stamp is the window to different countries and cultures. We want to prompt the communication between Guangxi and Southeast Asia," said Yang Limin, chairman of All-China Philatelic Federation (ACPF).

"This exhibition would work as the engine for Nanning's economy and help attract more investment from home and abroad," said Meng Wenhu, a senior official from Nanning.

ACPF, founded in 1982, is a member of Inter-Asia Philatelic Federation (FIAP). It has 41 institutional members and three million individual members in China.
