Description
The three Ministries of Education, Communications, and Culture and Information have decided to co-sponsor a nation-wide letter-writing campaign.

As a result of the development and widespread daily use of telecommunications such as telephone and television, we are losing one of our traditional habits, letter-writing. This is an unfortunate aspect of today's telecommunications development because one's human affections and love for others are better expressed in writing than on the telephone or by any other electronic means.

It is thus the aim of the letter-writing campaign to recover our old custom of exchanging greetings and inquiring after the well-being of our friends and relatives by letter. It is also expected that a national habit of letter-writing, once recovered, will not only help a rebirth of warm humanly relations into our society, but also contributed to raising the popular level of the art of writing.

Every last day of month has been desugnated by the campaign as "The Letter-Writing Day", which will be effective on December 31, 1982. It is hoped that this campaign will be elevated to a pan-national cultural movement opening the minds of our people and promoting better understanding and communicating among them, in order to make the point of the letter-writing campaign known to the public, and also to express the hope that the campaign will bear the desired result.
