Keeping people posted

According to, "The hosting of a major stamp exhibition in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) signaled a growing interest in stamp collecting and philately in the country, said Abdullah Khoury, head of the Emirates Philatelic Association."

Khoury says philately is still in the developing stages in the UAE.

"This is a first major step in promoting philately in this region, and a means to bring international recognition to regional philately and stamp collection," he said.
