Emirates Post's Training and Development Centre (TDC) is collaborating with the Universal Postal Union (UPU) to raise training standards for postal organisations in the Middle East.
The two organisations recently finalised a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which was signed by Wiaam Ghanem, director of TDC, and Edouard Dayan, UPU's director general.
"As a result of the MoU, we will be able to match our training standards to global standards. This will raise Emirates Post's profile regionally and globally, as all our training programmes will be based on UPU standards and updated regularly through exchange of technical data and visits by consultants," said Ghanem.
"We aim to impart advanced training to our employees, especially UAE nationals. As the UAE postal and logistics sectors are evolving, we will be able to train professionals who can occupy strategic positions in these sectors. This way, we will now be able to overcome the shortage of trained manpower in these individual fields," she added.
The MoU strengthens the relationship between Emirates Post and the UPU. Emirates Post is already a member of the UPU Council of Administration, a body that decides a number of important postal policy matters. Also, in November 2006, Emirates Post hosted the UPU Strategy Conference in an Arab country for the very first time.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
