It goes on to say, "In June, a delegation from Post Danmark visited it Chinese business partners China Post in Beijing. The two national postal services have started a comprehensive cooperation working together in a wide range of areas including knowledge sharing, stamp production and staff education."

According to the report, "The collaboration first started in 2010, and since then a school has been established in Beijing to train Chinese stamp designers and improve their skills in steel engraving for stamps.

"The collaboration will result in a collection of Chinese designed stamps with motifs from Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales. The stamps will be published next year in both China and Denmark. In the end of 2011 the two sides will publish a joint collection of stamps, and also Danish stamps will be sold to stamp collectors in China Post shops all over China."
