Basic Law as a foundation for the stability and prosperity – new stamp by Hongkong Post

March 28th, 2015 is glad to inform our readers that Hongkong Post is ready to release a set of commemorative stamps on the theme of "The 25th Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Basic Law". The issue has been already designed and is to be put into circulation on the 2d of April.

Adopted on April 4, 1990, by the 7th National People's Congress of China and implemented on July 1, 1997, the Basic Law is the constitutional document of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

The Basic Law enshrines, in the form of law, the principle of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy, and prescribes the systems to be practised in the HKSAR. April 4, 2015, marks the 25th anniversary of the promulgation of the Basic Law. Hongkong Post is issuing a set of commemorative stamps to mark this important milestone.

The set comprises four stamps with illustrations showing different aspects of the HKSAR upon the implementation of the Basic Law as well as the close ties between the HKSAR and the motherland.

The souvenir sheet features a cartoon map of Hong Kong in the background, with the four stamps being plated in different parts of the map to illustrate that the Basic Law has laid a solid foundation for the stability and prosperity of the HKSAR with safeguards for each and every aspect.
