Deputy premier sends message from Middle East
(CNS): The deputy premier and minister responsible for the postal service is currently in Doha, Qatar, where she is attending the Universal Postal Union’s 25th congress. In a message to mark World Postal Day (Tuesday 9 October), Juliana O’Connor Connolly reported that Cayman won a bronze medal for its express mail service at the event. Sending the message home from the Middle East as Cayman joins the rest of the world in celebrating the official observance of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in Berne, Switzerland in 1894, she said the local postal service (CIPS) is still holding its own in this era of developing technology and could compete on the world stage.
According to a release from the minsitry and from the conference officials, the minister, accompanied by her chief officer and postmaster general, is joining some 2,200 delegates gathered at the conference to discuss the future of the postal sector, adopt the organization's work programme for the next four years and refine the rules for international mail exchanges among the UPU's 192 member countries.
Despite a changing business landscape, the postal service remains an important means of communication. According to UPU statistics, worldwide mail services deliver nearly 445 billion letters every year. The postal service is increasingly tied to newer means of communications involving electronic transactions and is at the end game of ecommerce -- that is, delivery of packages.
