Presidential Memo Regarding UPU, Terminal Dues and Advance Electronic Data

August 24, 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump issued a memorandum on August 23 to the Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, Secretary of Homeland Security, Postmaster General and Chairman of the Postal Regulatory Commission on issues related to the international postal system. The memorandum, titled “Modernizing the Monetary Reimbursement Model for the Delivery of Goods Through the International Postal System and Enhancing the Security and Safety of International Mail,” focuses on terminal dues, advance electronic data, and UPU reform. The Secretary of State is required to submit a report to President Trump by November 1, 2018 that summarizes steps being taken to implement the memorandum, noting that “If the Secretary determines that sufficient progress on reforms to promote compatibility of the Acts of the UPU with the policy of this memorandum is not being achieved, the Secretary shall include recommendations for future action, including the possibility of adopting self‑declared rates.”
