Indian philately to be showcased at Slovenia fair

Ljubljana, March 26: India Post will put on display the evolution of Indian philately at an annual international exhibition in Slovenia’s capital from March 27-29.

Slovenia Post and the Slovenia Philatelic Association will support the display of Indian stamps in this Central European nation, First Day Covers and other materials at the annual international fair COLLECTA, according to the Indian Embassy in Ljubljana. I

India Post will be in focus at this fair. Slovenia Post will also circulate the Indian stamps through major post offices to generate widespread interest in Indian philately.

The process initiated by the Embassy of India in Ljubljana is expected to culminate with the joint issue of stamps by postal authorities of both the countries to commemmorate an event significant to both partners, such as Children’s Day.

The popularisation of Indian philately in Slovenia is aimed at promoting awareness and curiosity about India to boost tourism and foster greater knowledge and mutual understanding, the embassy said.

COLLECTA brings together international collectors and traders including those interested in philately, numismatics, deltiology, military, antiques, vinyl records and CDs, comics, figurines, minerals, fossils and precious stones.
