SANA'A, Nov. 15 ) Minister of Telecommunication and Information Technology Abdulmalik Al-Mu'alimi headed Yemen's delegation to the UAE to participate in the World Post Strategies Conference, organized Nov. 14 to 16 by the International Post Corporation.

Al-Mu'alimi is accompanied by Mohamed Ali Murghem, General Manager of Post and Postal Savings Corporation and other officials from the Ministry of Telecommunication and Information Technology.

The Yemeni delegation accepted an invitation for the conference extended by Edward Dyane, general director of International Post Corporation.

It is for the first time that the Post Strategies Conference is held outside the International Post Corporation premises in Switzerland. Many countries are competing to host the conference in the years to come.

Eight hundred people from 130 countries, including ministers, chairpersons of post corporations and international organizations, as well as representatives of public and private post companies, are participating in the conference.

The conference aims to draw a road map for post sectors during the years to come via competition and approval of the postal strategies between 2008 and 2012.

Additionally, the conference focuses on issues related to sustainable development in the post sector, as well as the technical, economic and demographic transformations in post sectors. These transformations necessitate that decision-makers cooperate with strategic post partners to bring an international post infrastructure, characterized by dynamism and capability to offer top quality services and meet the growing demands of customers.
