Agree - I think they should be together in the same article.
So far as I know, the SPB is always using China Post as its alternative name in people's life and on its business works (just like Australia Post using Auspost),while mostly using its own official name in political events and on governmental documentations.
In addition, the Philately services in PRC is authorized to the China National Philatelic Corporation (CNPC, Chinese: 中国集邮总公司), which is the primary agency of SPB (or China Post) to sale the stamps nationally issued and the relevant own-designed philatelic items to public. Different with the post offices and/or branches, it is a government-owned company in Mainland China.
Comparing SPB (China Post) and CNPC, we can find that the post services and philatelic services are normally separated in Mainland China, not like Hongkong Post, Macau Post, and Chunghwa Post (in Taiwan) which provide both two kinds of services to public. CNPC can only do business on philately, while the post offices/branches can do more than that as well as the post services to public.
Agree — I went to State Post Bureau looking for information, and I found some of what I was looking for there and some of what I was looking for here. I support the merge so that all of this information is together in one article. Thecommexokid (talk) 21:30, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
