World Post Day celebrates the role of postal services in society and their importance in facilitating communication and economic growth. It aims to promote awareness of the postal sector and highlights the contributions made by postal workers and the services they provide. The day serves as an occasion to appreciate the complex logistics involved in the efficient delivery of mail, parcel, and money worldwide, with international mailing services being an essential component of modern society.
World Post Day was first declared at the 1969 Universal Postal Union (UPU) Congress in Tokyo, Japan, and has since been celebrated every year. For Kiwis, the postal service has long been an important aspect of daily life. In 1840, New Zealand saw its first official mail service set up, and since then, postal services have grown and evolved to accommodate the changing needs of the community. Today, New Zealand Post plays a crucial role in connecting people not only within the country but with friends, family, and businesses around the world.
In New Zealand, World Post Day is observed by acknowledging the dedication and hard work of postal employees and raising awareness about the importance of postal services. New Zealand Post often commemorates the day by hosting various events and initiatives celebrating the history and achievements of the postal industry. These initiatives help to highlight the essential services provided by the postal sector to the people and businesses of New Zealand, ensuring efficient communication and commerce. World Post Day is observed every year on October 9th.
