A new stamp has been launched for the 20th anniversary of the Trinidad and Tobago Postal Corporation's Express Mail Service (EMS).

The company said in a statement issued this week that the commemorative stamp marks 20 years since Trinidad and Tobago has been utilizing EMS.

General Manager Sales and Marketing, George Nicholas Martin said this service, offered by more than 190 countries worldwide, opened the postal gateway for Trinidad and Tobago in allowing the ease of e-commerce and access to local markets.

Giving his address at the launch, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Public Utilities, Adrian Leonce praised TTPost for its good work expressing “the EMS is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when we work together.”

Leonce added that the emergence of the Information Age and the digital transformation that goes along with it means that traditional mail carriers must now find alternative ways of remaining relevant, and this can only be accomplished through partnership.

Leonce stressed in a dynamic market place such as today and with the cross-border e-commerce market expected to ramp up to more than 8.5 billion items by the year 2039.

He added that collaboration and cooperation at every level of TTPost is not a choice but a necessity.

Leonce said his Ministry will continue to support TTPost and its good work.
