The Director General of the UPU (Universal Postal Union) International Bureau, Mr. BISHAR Hussein, carried out, on 19th July 2016, a working visit to the Head Office of CAMPOST and its DATA CENTER, on the sidelines of the 9th Ordinary Session of the Plenipotentiary Conference of the Pan African Postal Union (PAPU 2016) held in the Cameroon's capital city, Yaounde.
The visit began at the Head Office of the public postal operator where the UPU Director General, accompanied by the PAPU Secretary General, Mr. YOUNOUSS Djibrine, who was candidate for his own succession, had an important working session with the new CAMPOST General Manager, Pierre KALDADAK, surrounded with his staff. The ten Regional Delegations also participated through the videoconference. This enabled the Director General to have an idea of Cameroon’s postal services in the hinterland. Two regional delegates was given the floor to provide a broad overview of postal services in their area, including the Littoral and North West regions.
In his welcome address, Mr. KALDADAK unveiled the roadmap prescribed by the Government when appointing him and reassured that his action will be fully based on the IPDP, the UPU Integrated postal reform and development plan, which has already proven its worth worldwide.
The UPU Director General, in turn, expressed his satisfaction for the directions in the roadmap and the technological achievement made by CAMPOST through the implementation of the E-Post project.
Then, the visitors proceeded precisely to the DATA CENTER, the flagship of digital postal services in Cameroon. The special guest was treated to a guided tour, room after room, with explanations of CAMPOST technicians.
Besides, Mr. Armand DJODOM, Secretary General of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, joined the visit which wrapped up at the Data Center with a Press briefing. Facing national and International media, Mr. BISHAR Hussein gave his first impressions of his visit to CAMPOST. He was obviously satisfied with what he saw and heard. This greatly comforted the new General Manager of CAMPOST and Cameroonians, in general.
