A new Royal Mail Post and Go Kiosk (A011) was in use at the 20th GCC Stamps Exhibition in Doha, Qatar, are 29 September to 3 October (at the Landmark Shopping Mall).
The event is organised by Qatar Postal Services (Q-Post), in cooperation with
Qatar Club for Amateurs of Collecting Stamps and Coins, with
participation of all GCC states and a large number of GCC amateur
associations for collecting stamps.
The exhibition includes more than 200 frames, 25 of which are allocated
for GCC states, to showcase their best collections of stamps and history
to share experiences and support amateur groups. The annual expo is
held alternately on the sidelines of meetings of GCC postal corporations
directors. Qatar Philatelic and Numismatic Club will hold an auction of
stamps and coins on the third day of the exhibition.
The Exhibition was opened yesterday by Minister of
Communication and Information Technology H E Dr Hessa Sultan Al Jaber at
Landmark Mall. [From www.thepeninsulaqatar.com]
