Universal Postal Union (UPU)

The Universal Postal Union (UPU), established in 1874 in Berne, Switzerland, under the Treaty of Berne to regulate international postal services, became a United Nations specialized agency in 1948. During 1997, UPU continued to promote a fast and reliable universal postal service at affordable prices through international collaboration among its member countries. In the light of the rapidly changing and highly competitive business environment, UPU carried out activities to promote postal development and assist postal administrations to improve the quality of their services to meet growing customer demands. The postal services of its 189 member countries remained the largest physical distribution network in the world, with some 6 million postal employees working in more than 700,000 post offices worldwide, processing and delivering an annual average of more that 400 billion mail items.
