Launch of pilot project of Universal Postal Union “Easy Export”

The pilot project of the Universal Postal Union “Easy Export” was launched on Friday with the aim of simplifying export procedures for small and medium-sized enterprises, said Secretary of State in charge of the Digital Economy, Habib Dabbabi.

“The project aims to support the integration of SMEs in foreign trade and to boost their exports, by using the three-dimensional postal network with its varied services (physical, logistical and financial) favouring the development and facilitation of international trade in particular through e-commerce, “he said, adding that the Tunisian Post provides 70% of the country’s daily financial activity.

The aim is to reduce the cost of products and facilitate their access to foreign markets, according to Dabbabi.

The Secretary of State also noted that the Tunisian Post will soon launch several reforms, likely to improve its services, modernise its infrastructure and generalise the use of new technologies in its various structures.

He also reiterated the need to work more on the complementarity between the three strands of the postal activity (postal, financial and electronic activities), through the establishment of integrated services between electronic commerce and e-administration.

For his part, CEO of the Tunisian Post, Moez Chakchouk said Tunisia has joined the project “Easy Export” since September 2016 at the Universal Postal Conference, held in Istanbul.

The Secretary General of the Pan-African Postal Union (UPAP), Younouss Djibrine said Tunisia is among the leading African countries in the digital economy, stressing that the “Easy Export” platform will allow Tunisian SMEs to acquire new African markets, through the simplification of export procedures, with the use of electronic payment (e-payment) and e-commerce services.
