G20 Seoul Summit 2010

Date of Issue : 11 November 2010

The G20 Summit was held in Seoul, Korea for two days from November 11 to 12,.

Created in 1999, the G20 Summit is a forum of 20 leaders from the greatest economic powers among the 192 UN members. It comprises 20 countries: the existing G7 (USA, UK, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada) and 12 emerging countries (Korea, China, India, Indonesia, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Australia, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia) and the EU. Since first held in Washington in 2008, the G20 Summit Meeting has been held in London, UK in April 2009, Pittsburg, the U.S. in September 2009, and Toronto, Canada in June 2010. Following these, the 5th meeting was in November 2010 in Korea.

Two commemorative stamps featuring “Gwanghwamun (Gate)” and the “logo of the G20 Seoul Summit” were issued. These stamps express two concepts: Korea welcomes the people from all over the world by opening up the great gate of Gwanghwamun; our wish that this Seoul Meeting, just like Cheongsachorong, the traditional Korean lantern adorned with red and blue silk will light the way for the world economy to a brighter future.

It seems that there is a new type of Korean registration label.
