During this period, the Ministry of Communications will host the "National Postage Stamp Exhibition" and many other related vities.

At the "National Postage Stamp Exhibition" held at the Sejong Cultural Center during this year's Exhibition, Philatelic art selected from each regional preliminary contest will be on display. In addition, a philatelists' convention, philatelic seminars for teenagers, and an autograph session of postage stamp designers will be held.
