Beijing will once again usher in a world-renowned Olympic event - the 24th Olympic Winter Games - in 2022 after the successful hosting of the 29th Olympic Summer Games in 2008. This enables Beijing the first “Dual-Olympics” city in the world. Macao Post and Telecommunications Bureau will issue the stamp theme “Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022” on 25th January, 2022 in order to transmit and promote the Olympic spirit.
