Santo Domingo.- Erick Guzmán, the General Director of the Dominican Postal Institute (INPOSDOM), is currently attending the 4th Extraordinary Congress of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This international gathering, taking place from October 1st to 5th, has drawn representatives from 192 member countries of the UPU.
The 4th Extraordinary Congress of the UPU is notable for its proactive approach to addressing shifts in the global postal landscape and exploring potential growth opportunities within the sector.

Guzmán expressed his pride in representing the Dominican Republic at the UPU Congress, where he is contributing to discussions and decisions that will influence the future of postal services worldwide, directly impacting the quality of postal services within the Dominican Republic. He highlighted that the Dominican government’s payment of a historical debt dating back to 1979 has enabled the country to actively participate in the Congress, granting it a voice and vote. This participation allows the Dominican Republic to access the Quality Improvement Fund provided by the UPU, showcasing the nation’s dedication to strengthening its postal system.
During the event, Guzmán held meetings with the UPU’s General Director, Masahiko Metoki, and Pablo Valentín Rosario, the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Swiss Confederation and Permanent Representative to the UPU. Discussions revolved around a potential reform project for INPOSDOM, covering technical and administrative aspects.
