With 192 member countries, the Universal Postal Union (UPU) is the primary forum for cooperation and development between postal sector players. It helps to ensure a truly universal network of modern products and services.

The Director General and the Deputy Director General of the UPU’s International Bureau will be elected by the member countries during the 25th Universal Postal Congress in Doha (Qatar) in October 2012.

The Deputy Director General is one of the pillars on which the Director General and the entire organisation rely. He takes a leading role in the day-to-day running of the International Bureau and replaces the Director General. Supporting the Director General, the Deputy Director General guarantees the continuity of the organisation’s activities and work.
