    Background: Delegates to the African and Malagasy Posts and Telecommunications Union (U.A.M.P.T.) met in the Congolese capital, Brazzaville, on Monday (21 July) to discuss further developments in the work towards a common communications system.

    The week-long meeting was hosted by Congolese Posts and Telecommunications Minister, Colonel Yhombi Opango...and headed by U.A.M.P.T. current President Captain Charles Bambara, the Upper Volta Information and Posts minister.

    Delegates from twelve African states--including Ivory Coast, Niger, the Republic of Gabon, Senegal, Chad and Rwanda--attended the conference, which is dealing separately with legal, administrative, technical and financial matters.

    Addressing the representatives, Captain Bambara criticised the U.A.M.P.T. for not fulfilling its true potential over the ten years since it was established. There are many outstanding areas of difficulty still to be overcome before postal and telecommunications systems are uniform, he said.
