Episode 153: USA vs UPU - the inside story (continued...)

Pierre Morin, International Relations at Canada Post, is back to fill us in on what has been happening at the UPU:

  • Net importers vs net exporters

  • A detailed discussion of the three options that have been proposed:

    • Accelerating minor increases previously agreed (including modelling of how this would affect Canada Post)

    • Self-declared rates (the only option that currently seems acceptable to the USA), including protections against price gouging

    • The compromise option with a transition period before introducing self-declared rates, including price caps

  • The postal ballot process, including the involvement of “sanctioned countries”

  • Likely process for the Congress to be held in September - if indeed it goes ahead

  • The chance for compromise at the Congress

  • Public statements made by other nations

  • Funding changes if the USA withdraws from the UPU
