Permanent secretary shares postal service aspirations

Brunei’s postal services have been undergoing transformation with the enactment of the Postal Services Order 2023, placing regulatory functions under the purview of the Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam, said Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Transport and Info-communications (MTIC) Haji Mohammad Nazri bin Haji Mohammad Yusof. He said this at the 29th ASEAN Postal Business Meeting (APBM) yesterday. He also said, “Our aspiration is to enhance postal services by offering improved and accessible solutions to users, thus contributing sustainably to the economy.

“The collaborative environment of APBM fosters learning from experiences and challenges of other postal service providers though a platform of substantive deliberation.”

The permanent secretary added, “The APBM is pivotal in aligning postal services with the ever-changing digital landscape in ASEAN. It resulted in the introduction of innovative products such as the ASEAN Pack, contributing to the growth of e-commerce in the region.

“These collaborative initiatives improved service quality and promote sustainable practices in the postal sector.”

Acting Postmaster General Dr Rosdi bin Haji Abdul Aziz said, “Our talks and discussions hold the potential to shape the future of our postal networks, fostering increased collaboration. We are here to coordinate, review programmes and projects and follow up on the stakeholder’s directions, while addressing challenges and issues.

“Let’s seize the opportunity to learn from each other, share successes and explore innovative solutions shaping the future of our postal networks.”

The APBM meeting inaugurated in 1992, involves 10 postal service operators from ASEAN countries with the objective of serving as a platform for the heads of the ASEAN postal administration to meet, exchange views and share best practices to advance the postal services. – James Kon
