The "New Theory" Agriculture According to His Majesty's Initiative Project Postage Stamp

This set of postage stamps has been announced to be released since the fifth of December 2004. However, it's been postponed and release a year later. I think Thailand Post has to make sure that it has an official letter of acknowledgement from the Royal Palace Secretariat Office before it could issue this highly valuable postage stamps depicting His Majesty the King's pictures and his initiative project on the "new theory" agriculture which promotes self-sufficient economy, in the time Thailand faced an economic crisis a couple of years ago. Without all these projects, Thai farmers would have been suffered from the crisis in an immeasurable degree. Thus, the postage stamps perfectly commemorate the talent of His Majesty the King and are certainly worth collecting.
