UPU announces date change for prestigious high-level forum on wider postal sector engagement

20.12.2019 - The following is a brief statement from the Universal Postal Union’s Programme Manager for Communication and Events David Dadge.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have been obliged to change the date of UPU’s high level forum on wider postal sector engagement to Thursday, 13 February 2020. Please note the programme and venue remain the same.”

Background:  The trend towards liberalization, privatization and digitalization are transforming the boundaries of the postal sector. With the surge of e-commerce, new players have become increasingly active in postal markets, bringing with them opportunities for partnerships and alliances that can drive efficiency and greater interoperability. As the UN specialised agency providing the primary forum for the postal sector, it is critical that the UPU be inclusive and responsive to the needs of all postal sector players.

To ensure its stakeholders can take advantage of these emerging opportunities, the UPU will host a high-level forum on wider postal sector engagement in Berne, Switzerland, on 13 February  2020. The forum will bring together high-level representatives from governments, regulators, designated operators, international organizations, other private sector players, as well as civil society, to examine three key questions:

•       Why the UPU should open itself to wider postal sector players?
•       What the UPU has to offer wider postal sector players and partners?
•       How the UPU should transform to respond to the needs of its stakeholders?
