A WORLD IN SEARCH OF MEANING 

Examples of paradoxical situations faced by the UPU 

Predicting the unpredictable 

Planning strategies for the long term, while new types of conflicts that know no borders, deregulation of trade, or constant reshuffling of poles of influence make any projections unreliable. 

Resources tightening but profits demanded 

With zero nominal growth, build a productive economic model which not only satisfies the organization’s own needs but is also able to yield a profit. 

Even the system’s “competitors” are in favour of it 

The UPU, guarantor of a universal public service, often seen as lacking in modernity or responsiveness, now enjoys support as a means of ensuring a stable network of transactions and maintaining the world order. 

An urgent need to find the right path
