Postal Network Still Relevant in Modern World

World Post Day 2

This past Wednesday, World Post Day was celebrated around the world. As part of his message during the annual celebration, Universal Postal Union Director Bishar Hussein stressed the relevance of the postal network in the modern world.

“Posts remain important facilitators of national and international trade in this constantly evolving world,” said Hussein. “The postal network, with more than 600,000 post offices, remains the largest physical network on the planet and a fundamental infrastructure for large segments of the economy.”

He also stressed the importance of the online shopping revolution in the evolution of the postal network.

“As ecommerce grows, postal services are positioning themselves as the delivery service of choice for goods ordered online,” said Hussein.

Hussein also advocated the expansion of financial services at post offices, stating that offering such services in locations where traditional banking may not be widely available would help ensure access to the system by all who need it.
