The National Postal Authority (NPA) has amended the conditions and standard of offering private postal services, according to NPA chairperson Essam El-Sagheer.
Licensing contracts were renewed with service providers of international companies working in Egypt according to new standards, he added. According to El-Sagheer, the new standards aim to maintain the rights of the authority and licensed companies, as well as to regulate the market in order to ensure the quality of the services offered to clients. The standards also aim to protect the market from unlicensed companies. El-Sagheer refused to reveal further details about the recent amendments.
