Designed by a team from the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, the set includes four stamps and a first day cover, with a theme of "Prosperity in the Year of the Ox". Its overall tone and background design highlight Fiji’s natural landscapes such as sunny beaches and field villages.

Supported by the Tianjin Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, the Fiji Chinese Cultural Center will also launch intangible cultural heritage courses during the Spring Festival. Featuring Tianjin Yangliuqing woodblock prints, Tianjin Yangliuqing paper-cuts, and traditional Chinese calligraphy, the courses will combine video sessions and hands-on experiences.
