Spanish Postal Service Issues EFE 75th Anniversary Stamp

MADRID – Spain’s postal service has issued a stamp commemorating the 75th anniversary of Agencia Efe, the country’s international news agency, with which it shares the aim of “communicating,” Correos de España president Javier Cuesta Nuin said Wednesday.

The stamp depicts a keyboard on which the keys of a typewriter and a computer are mixed together and on which can be read the slogan “La actualidad mundial en español” (World current events in Spanish).

The latest in the Efemeride series, the stamp will have an initial print run of 300,000 and carry a postal value of 0.38 euros (about 51 U.S. cents).

“We are sister companies ... due to our objective. We two (companies) communicate with each other, Efe openly and Correos privately,” said Cuesta, adding that the postal service has collaborated since its origins with news agencies by different methods.

“Efe has fully earned this small recognition due to the historic prestige its professionals have given to it,” he added.

Agencia Efe President Jose Antonio Vera expressed thanks for the tribute by Correos and emphasized that public companies “always” help one another during difficult times.

The stamp, he said, will help to provide greater visibility to the celebration of Efe’s 75th anniversary.

The stamp’s presentation ceremony was held at Madrid’s Casa del Lector, which is hosting an exhibition on the 75 years of history of the world’s fourth-largest news agency.
