2014 World Post Day theme

The UPU was established in the Berne on 9th October, 1874. The main objective of union was to maintain and create the structure for open flows of the worldwide mail around world. In many of the global countries and organizations, the ministers or the high ranking officials issue the proclamations or make their speech on achievements or the history of the international or national postal services. The postal services may issue the unique postal stamps to commemorate the history, achievements or the ideals of national postal service on the World Post Day. All these are respected by the philatelists and stamp collectors. Further to it, unusual education on these topics can be prepared for school children and postal services. Also the employees can receive the extra training or the attention and recognition in media.

The UPU in the cooperation with the UNESCO for last 35 years organized the global competition of the letter-writing for the young people. Most of the participating postal services use this special day to award the prizes to competition winners. World Post Day is not the public holiday therefore public is entirely not affected by it.

From earlier times, the postal services are existed in form of messengers that traveled huge distances on horseback or foot. In the year 1600s and 1700s, the large number of the countries placed up the system of the national postage and also entered in two- sided agreements for exchange of mails among countries. By the end of the year 1800, there was the huge web of the two- sided agreement which made distribution of the global mail complicated, inefficient and nontransparent.

Montgomery Blair, in the year 1863, Postmaster General in USA, prepared the conference of the legislature from 15 American and European countries.
