C3 – Commemorating Trade Union Conference of Asian and Australasian Countries

The World Federation of Trade Unions is short for the World Federation of Trade Unions. It is a mass organization of a progressive international working class. From November 16 to December 1, 1949, the Asian, Australian Trade Union Conference under the leadership of the World Federation of Trade Unions was held in Beijing, China. To congratulate the meeting in the newly born New China, the North China Post Administration issued this set of commemorative stamps. Liu Ningyi, the vice chairman of the then general manager and the head of the preparatory office of the Asian-Australian trade union meeting, instructed the director of the conference secretariat, Mr. Wang Runfeng, to work closely with Cao Bihui of the Workers’ Daily to complete the artwork. The three stamps of the full set of stamps are the same. They are a huge earth in the universe. They are painted on the maps of Asia and Australia. One of them holds the hammer of the word “1949” and extends from the position of the Chinese capital Beijing. On January 10, 1955, a reprint was issued.
