AN evaluation of the ongoing Q-Post project of connecting the branch offices to the postal corporation’s IT network would be carried out soon. This was decided at a meeting between Q-Post chairman Ali Mohamed al-Ali and chairman of international relations of Slovenian Post Jan Koehler at General Post Office yesterday. Koehler is the Universal Postal Union (UPU) official overseeing the improvement of the country’s ongoing postal projects. Announcing the plans, Q-Post chairman said the corporation would utilise fully the share it had received from the UPU’s terminal use fund for improving the services of the corporation. The UPU share of 7% for postal improvement would be allotted to all postal corporations. As per a UPU agreement, the money that the UPU allots for postal projects comes from the advanced industrialised countries. The fund is provided to finance the administering of projects until 2012. Each country has a national co-ordinator to oversee the ongoing projects. For the improvement of services Jan Koehler suggested the training of postal staff. He said the movement of staff to other sectors in search of better opportunities would jeopardise the implementing of postal projects. Al-Ali briefed the Slovenian official of the steps the Q-Post had undertaken to improve the postal services in Qatar. The electronic-linked developments at the corporation were also discussed. The Slovenian official also held talks with Q-Post IT manager George Scott Campbell. [Gulf Times]
