Conference of the West African Ministries in charge of Postal Administrations (WAPC)

As part of the West African Postal Conference, a working session was held on 12 April 2012 to discuss « Future Business Models for the Posts of the Sub-region ». The workshop was prepared by the Swiss, French and Belgian delegations, and moderated by Mr. Pascal Clivaz. Discussions revolved around an assessment of the role posts currently play in the economies of West African countries, and actions to be taken to better position them as a driver of economic growth. Participants also benefited from contributions from Mr. Moussibahou Mazou, the former UPU DDG and author of a leadingstudy for the African Union.

The results were presented to the Ministers by Professor Matthias Finger from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL).
