Description
The Year 1983 is World Communication Year.

In november1981, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 1983 "World Communications Year", during its 36th session, in order to make the world recognize the fundamental importance of communications infrastructures as an essential element in economic and social development, and to provide the opportunity for all countries to undertake an in-depth review and analysis of their policies on development of communications infrastructures.

From October 26 through November 1, 1983, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) holds in Geneva, Switzerland, TELECOM 83, an international telecommunication exhibition, which includes such telecommunication programmes as seminars, book exhibition, movie contest, art contest for youths, etc. A pilot project participated in by more than 20 countries will be carried out to accelerate the development of communications infrastructures of the developing countries.

The national programmes of our country features such activities as telecommunication exhibition, telecommunication seminar, and postage stamp exhibition, all of which are scheduled to be held at the Korea Exhibition Center from August 1 - 10, 1983. An art contest for youths is also being planned.

The Ministry of Communications issues this postage stamp to commemorate World Communications Year and to provide the general public with an opportunity to recognize the importance of communications.
