IMAG Statement on UPU Extraordinary Congress Outcome


Geneva, Switzerland, September 25, 2019 —The International Mailers’ Advisory Group (IMAG), an association representing the U.S. international mailing sector, released the following statement on the outcome of the Universal Postal Union’s Extraordinary Congress in Geneva.

IMAG is pleased that the Universal Postal Union (UPU) was able to find a solution to achieve global remuneration reform that allows the United States to remain in the UPU, a 144-year old organization of which the United States was a founding member. By remaining in the UPU, the United States retains its important leadership role in the global postal system. Mailers and shippers will see no interruption in service through the critical holiday season and beyond.
