PostEurop welcomes decision on International Postal Rates

Members of PostEurop welcome the decision taken to maintain the union during the UPU Extraordinary Congress meeting in Geneva yesterday.

This was the outcome when UPU members reached an agreement to allow the phased introduction of self-declared rates for every country, also known as “Option V”.

“Maintaining the Union is a priority for all PostEurop Members” explains Jean-Paul Forceville, Chairman of PostEurop. “Our members are key contributors to the world economy and the remuneration discussions have a global impact on posts and their customers. Therefore, we welcome the consensual decision taken at the UPU Congress to maintain a union with all its members, in the spirit of multilateralism.”

“This decision is a victory of everyone! First, it allows maintaining the unity of the UPU’s global delivery network by keeping all the UPU Members in the organisation. At the same time, the compromise decision addresses the concern of some countries related to the level of remuneration of international e-commerce postal flows, while ensuring the business relevance of the postal e-commerce delivery system too.” said Botond Szebeny, PostEurop Secretary General.
