At the 27th Universal Postal Congress in Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire), Mr. Masahiko Metoki (Japan) was elected Director General of the Organization, as was Mr. Marjan Osvald (Slovenia) as Deputy Director General. We warmly congratulate them and wish them every success in finding lasting solutions to the many challenges facing the UPU family.
Driving is an activity that Pascal has practiced in many forms, driving all kinds of vehicles as well as different companies, in a spirit of flexibility, innovation and... of course mobility.

1984 marked the first international peace meeting for Pascal, then 16 years old and accompanying his father, a politician, to Berlin. Then came his first UPU Congress in Beijing, which was followed by several others...
1999: 22nd Congress in Beijing, with two representatives of the Swiss delegation (Reto Braun, DG Swiss Post and Hans Werder, Secretary General of Detec).
26th UPU Congress in Istanbul (2016), with Kenan Bozgeyik, Congress President and Ambassador Bishar Hussein, UPU DG.
What is the most important thing in Pascal's life? Unquestionably, the family:
first of all his own, then the big postal family. That's why he has always been keen to encourage people to get together (before the confinements and the coronavirus), around parties or outings, from Lake Geneva to Mount Pilate, including lively receptions.
2011 : UPU visit of the Cailler chocolate house
2012 : Visit of the Swiss Federal Parlament
2012 : Swiss reception in Doha
2019: Reception at the Swiss national Stadium

Africa invites you; the UPU and the Ivory Coast are ready to welcome you.
