BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- China Post, the country's official postal service operator, announced on Friday it will issue a set of five commemorative stamps and a souvenir sheet on Oct. 1 to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

Decorated with patterns such as high-speed trains, cultural facilities and green mountains, the stamps portray five different aspects of Chinese society over the past 70 years: the continuous and sound development of the economy, the progress of socialist democracy, the flourishing of culture, the continuous improvement of people's life and the construction of a beautiful China.
