The stamp issue is a collaboration between La Poste, the Vietnamese Embassy in France, and the Viet Nam Post in commemoration of the Southeast Asian country’s 40th reunification anniversary on April 30 and 70th National Day on September 2.
The collection is comprised of three designs with images representing three Vietnamese regions.

The first, intended for 20-gram priority letters, features Truong Tien Bridge, which spans the Huong (Perfume) River in Hue of Viet Nam’s central Thua Thien-Hue Province.
The second design, meant for 50-gram priority letters, depicts Nha Rong (Dragon House) Harbor in District 4, Ho Chi Minh City.
The last one, for outbound 20-gram letters, portrays the Ha Noi Opera House, which is located in the Vietnamese capital’s Hoan Kiem District.
Among the 14,040 stamps issued, 1,000 will be used for  letters inviting the Vietnamese community and French representatives to an event celebrating the Lunar New Year festival to be held by the Vietnamese Embassy on February 19, the first day of the lunar year.

Vietnamese Ambassador to France Nguyen Ngoc Son said at the stamp launch that the issuance both cements diplomatic ties between Viet Nam and France and partly reflects the two countries’ shared history.
Chief Executive Officer of La Poste’s International Mail Beatrice Roux said the set contributes to fostering France-Viet Nam cooperation and relations.

Earlier, La Poste collaborated with Vietnamese partners to publish a stamp on Ha Long Bay in 2008 and the other portraying Swiss-French bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin in 2013.
