Universal Postal Union – 140 Years AnniversaryBy
Happy Birthday UPU! Nice, informative piece under the byline of Director General Bishar Abdirahman Hussein of the UPU. He reminds us of the history and the ongoing importance of the posts and the three aspects and fundamental services of the postal world: physical, financial, and electronic.
“The communication landscape has certainly changed since 22 founding countries met in Berne, Switzerland, in 1874 to establish the UPU that now boasts 192 members.If postal services have helped shape globalization, as many believe, then the UPU has never been more relevant, as borders disappear, migratory movements swell, and e-commerce and trade flourish worldwide.”
