Hanoi (VNA) - A new stamp collection has been released to welcome the upcoming 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31), which will be held in Vietnam from May 12-23.

The collection, issued by the Ministry of Information and Communications, includes four 32mm by 43mm stamp designs and a 80mm by 100mm miniature sheet illustrating Vietnam’s strong sports of track and field, shooting, swimming, gymnastics and football.

The stamps are designed by painters Tran The Vinh and Nguyen Du of the Vietnam Post Corporation.
