Issuance Date: 4 August 2018

SINGAPORE, 3 August 2018 –Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) will launch tomorrow a new set of stamps commemorating Singapore’s Chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2018.

Established on 8 August 1967, ASEAN seeks to forge a collaborative community that fosters economic growth, political security and social progress in the region. The regional grouping comprises 10 member states: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

The tag line of Singapore’s ASEAN Chairmanship is “Resilient and Innovative". It encapsulates the vision for a united, adaptable and forward-looking ASEAN that can deal with the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing world.

The stamps incorporate the modern and stylised 2018 ASEAN Chairmanship logo, with a denomination of $1.30. Each of the three designs depicts one of the three pillars of the ASEAN Community: Political-Security, Economic and Socio-Cultural.

Pre-cancelled First Day Covers affixed with the complete set of stamps are available at $5.45 each.

The stamps will go on sale from 4 August 2018 at all post offices, the Philatelic Store, the Singapore Philatelic Museum, and will be available online at shop.singpost.com. The stamps will also be showcased at this weekend’s YOUTHx at the Singapore Sports Hub which features three anchor festivals: SHINE Festival, GetActive!
