🇵🇬 Some details of new issues have now appeared on the Post PNG (Papua New Guinea) internet site but some without illustrations. Two issues, it appears, are planned for the end of May 2020:-

6 March 2020 - Surcharges on previously issued 2016 Tuna industry issue - 3 values. K1.60 on K2 (Bluefin tuna) and K5 on K1.45 (Yellowfin tuna) and K6.90 on K1.45 (Yellowfin tuna).
27 May 2020 - Breadfruit - 4 stamps and 2 miniature sheets (one containing a single stamp and the other containing 4 stamps. Designed by Post PNG Philatelic Production and lithographed by Henan Post Printing, China.
I find the use of the term “collector’s stamps” to be interesting - it suggests, as we know to be true in so many countries now, that the Post Office recognises a difference between stamps for postage and stamps for collectors. That is an important point for collectors who have since the 1860s been collectors of ‘postage stamps’ - do they really want to be buyers of (often very expensive) ‘collector’s stamps’ which may be used for postage in theory but which the postal administrations issuing them actually think of as something quite distinct from postage stamps? Perhaps those collectors who still spend a lot of money on new issues might want to use this time of enforced restricted activities to consider their plans for the future of their collections and which modern products are to be added to them.
