UPU-Côte d'Ivoire seal hosting deal on 2014 strategy conference

24.04.2014 - The Universal Postal Union and the government of Côte d'Ivoire have officially reconfirmed that the Union’s strategic conference will be held in the latter’s economic capital, Abidjan.

The Ivoirian minister of post and information communication technologies, Bruno Nabagné Koné, and the UPU Director General Bishar A. Hussein signed the agreement on Wednesday, which defines the terms for hosting this major event in October.
“The strategy conference is an important milestone in the UPU work cycle, bringing together decision-makers from across the globe to carefully consider how much recent progress has been made to modernize the single postal territory,” said Hussein.
“The postal sector facilitates trade and communication exchanges. Its infrastructure is best-placed to promote the social, digital and economic inclusion of all people on this planet," he added.
The UPU strategy conference is held midway between the meetings of Congress, the highest forum of the Union, to take stock of how well the current world postal strategy is faring.
More than 600 decision-makers from postal experts to government ministers from the 192 UPU member countries are expected to attend the Abidjan event from October 14-15.
Discussions will focus on innovation, inclusion and integration within the postal sector.
UPU member countries adopted the latest Doha Postal Strategy at the last Congress in Qatar in 2012, which serves as the postal sector’s roadmap for 2013-16.
The 26th Universal Postal Congress will take place in 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey.
