World Post Day

Since 1969 World Post Day is celebrated each year on October 9, the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union in 1874.

Since then, countries across the world participate annually in the celebration. The postal administrations in many countries use the event to introduce or promote new postal products and services.

Activities also include conferences and seminars, educational and sport events, letter-writing competitions, philatelic exhibitions and special stamp issues.

World Post Day posters (shown above) are put on display in public places and a message from the Director General is distributed.

The theme for this year is "The Post – Reaching everyone everywhere: Earning customers' trust with total quality worldwide"
