Cuba to overhaul postal service - From EFE | November 2011

Cuba's postal service will become a state-owned corporate group next year bent on modernizing its administraton and seeking greater efficiency and quality as part of President Raul Castro's effort to "modernize" the island's socialist economic model.

The official economy weekly Opciones said that Correos de Cuba "will shed the old megastructure that impedes its development and install more modern systems of management, the guarantee of efficiency and quality."

With some 13,600 employees, Correos handles such services as newspaper, mail and shipment deliveries as well as a list of other services including Social Security payments and credits.

Its new model as a corporate group will include 18 territorial subsidiaries and others specializing in courier services, currency exchange, insurance and "superior address organization."

Correos de Cuba's director of strategy, Raul Marcial Cortina, told the weekly that "decentralization" is one of the goals of restructuring, with each subsidiary organizing and directing its own services in its own territory.

Cuba to restructure postal service from sprawling state entity to decentralized business group - By Associated Press

Cuba is restructuring its rickety postal service to boost efficiency, decentralizing the monolithic entity in favor of a state-run business group made up of largely autonomous regional offices.

Empresa Correos de Cuba, which employs some 13,600 workers and operates more than 1,000 post offices, 16 processing facilities and 54 delivery centers, will be reshaped around the middle of next year into 18 regional and two national entities, according to this week’s edition of the government financial magazine Opciones.

The stripped-down structure will be followed by a gradual program of improved internal controls, modernized facilities and updated technology.

The nascent business group’s director for national strategy, Raul Marcial Cortina, said each regional entity will have leeway to adapt service to local needs.

“It was unthinkable that a business so big could be perfected. ... This will bring a positive impact on efficiency and benefits for the workers,” Marcial Cortina was quoted as saying.

Cuba and US to Resume Direct Mail Talks 

Talks aimed at resuming direct postal service between the United States and Cuba, which has been suspended for decades, are set to be held in mid-September in another sign of thawing U.S.-Cuba relations, Western diplomats said.

Officials from the U.S. State Department and U.S. Postal Service were expected to attend the discussions in Havana, the diplomats, who asked not to be named, said.

No further details were immediately available and there was no immediate confirmation from the Cuban government.

The talks are part of U.S. President Barack Obama's declared intention to "recast" relations with Communist-ruled Cuba, which for 47 years has been the target of a U.S. trade embargo.

In April, Obama lifted restrictions on travel and remittances sent to Cuba by Cuban Americans with relatives on the island and he has restarted talks on immigration that were suspended by the Bush administration in 2004.

Cuba agreed in late May to resume the immigration discussions and also to a U.S. request for talks on the postal service.

At present, mail between the two countries must go through a third country.

U.S. express mail service companies such as UPS and FedEx cannot operate in Cuba but German-owned carrier DHL can operate in Cuba.
