  • Description

    The Ivory Coast Minister of Post and Telecommunications, Souleymane Cissoko, on Monday (29 September) opened the sixth governing body meeting of the regional centre for the training of postal workers.

    The meeting - in the Ivory Coast capital Abidjan - was held mainly to discuss the transformation of the regional centre to a multinational centre. The changeover took place on the first of August.

    Postal experts attended from the eight participating countries in the multinational centre - the Ivory Coast, Senegal, the Central African Republic, Mali, Upper Volta, Mauritania, Niger and Togo.

    Representatives of international organisations such as the Universal Postal Union and the United Nations Development Programme, were also at the opening session.

    The centre (regional) was opened in 1970 with the assistance of the Universal Postal Union and the United Nations Development Programme, but the multinational centre will be financed entirely by the participating countries.

    Formed initially for the training of postal inspectors, the centre, in the five years of its existence, now also runs training schemes for postal administrators.

    The meeting mostly discussed the amount each participating country should pay toward the running of the centre.
