To mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France in 2014, China Post issued a set of two commemorative stamps featuring the landmarks of the Qinhuai River in Nanjing and the Seine River in Paris.

Starting from the two stamps, “Nanjing Week” will include activities to promote Nanjing and continue the friendship amid the Paris Autumn Festival, a multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival.
