Malaysia & the People’s Republic of China 50th Anniversary Joint Commemorative Stamps

Pos Malaysia announces the launch of a special joint stamp collection to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and the People’s Republic of China, together with China Post. This golden milestone celebrates half a century of friendship, trust, and mutual respect, originating from the historic Joint Communiqué signed by Malaysia’s second Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak bin Hussein, and China’s Premier Chou En-lai on 31 May 1974.

For centuries, Malaysia and China have shared a rich history of cultural exchanges and people-to-people interactions, fostering deep-rooted connections between the two nations. In 2013, this relationship was elevated to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP), further strengthening bilateral ties. As we celebrate this significant anniversary, the future of Malaysia-China relations remains bright and mutually beneficial, with continued collaboration and shared prosperity on the horizon.

The commemorative stamps feature iconic trees from both countries: Malaysia’s national tree, the Merbau, and China’s renowned Greeting Pine, symbolising the enduring strength and hospitality of both nations. The Merbau tree symbolises the importance and the crucial role forest resources play in the development of industry and the economy. It represents the integrity of Malaysia’s forest management, which has been sustainably managed and conserved to ensure the preservation of the country’s rich biological diversity. Meanwhile, the Greeting Pine, one of China’s most famous trees located on Huangshan Mountain, embodies China’s cultural tradition of hospitality. Known for its long branches extending like an outstretched arm, the Greeting Pine serves as a cultural symbol of Chinese warmth and welcoming nature.

  • 1 Stamp Sheet consists of 20 x RM1.50 stamps (featuring the Merbau and the Greeting Pine)
