Regional postal administrators to meet in Bermuda

HAMILTON, Bermuda, CMC – Postal administrators from the Caribbean will examine the sustainability.

Bermuda’s Postmaster General, Wayne Smith, said the annual Caribbean Postal Union conference could also kick-start major changes in the island’s postal service, which has been struggling to make ends meet as more people turn to electronic means of correspondence.

Three of Bermuda’s sub-post offices – St David’s, Harrington Sound and Somerset Bridge – are due to close on November 1.

The theme of the conference is “Sustainability in the 21st century” and delegates will “examine the global challenges emanating from the electronic age in which Bermuda and Caribbean postal administrations operate, consider potential solutions to mitigate these challenges and provide options for repositioning Bermuda and Caribbean postal administrations for sustained future growth.

“It is anticipated that the 17th annual Caribbean Postal Union conference will not only generate visitor revenue for the island, it will help be the catalyst for substantive change in the postal sector in Bermuda, throughout the Caribbean region and globally.

“The decision to host this conference demonstrates that the Bermuda Post Office is thinking strategically and introducing initiatives with benefits to Bermuda far beyond mail delivery,” Smith said.

He added although the conference presents professional development opportunities for post office staff, “it will also provide an influx of business travellers at a time when visitor arrivals traditionally decline, as well as a huge cash injection that our economy so desperately needs.”
