As the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development noted, it is a great honor for Georgia to host such an event.
“Postal operators are irreplaceable part of the e-commerce since the orders need to be delivered to the buyers and therefore, there are great expectations regarding the innovations that postal operators offer and how to reach even higher service standards,” he said.
The Minister underlined that Georgian Post services are very impressive and high-standard.

PostEurop is the association of European public postal operators, one of the constituent unions of the Universal Postal Union. PostEurop was created in 1993 to simplify the exchange of mails in Europe, a task previously undertaken by the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations.
