    PNG Dealer's Directory
  • Permanent contact with foreigners and outside world dated back to 16th Century and up to 19th Century when Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, English, France seamen made numerous journeys to the islands. Germans also made their presence felt and managed to engrave strong influence on the northern half of the country (New Guinea) while the British colonised the southern half (Papua) and of course the Dutch took the present Irian Jaya (Dutch New Guinea) which is now part of Indonesia.

    Postal and Telecommunications history began in 1885 when Sir Peter Scratchley appointed Frank Lawes as POSTMASTER, HARBOUR MASTER, COLLECTOR OF CUSTOMS and CHIEF CLERK. The earliest letter known to pass through the newly established Port Moresby Post Office has on the envelope the postmark.

    "Port Moresby
    New Guinea
    August 26 1885"

    ... When Posts and Telegraphs Branch of Treasury Department ceased to exist and a new Posts and Telegraphs Department was created in 1955, the Papua New Guinea Philatelic Bureau was also started four years later in 1959.

    From 1959 up to now, Oh Yes! its 41 years now for PNG Philatelic Bureau ... Read (below) what Fred Bartu, one of the early pioneers who established the.. Bureau, could recall from the many ‘chapters’ of his yester years.:

    "In his apocalyptic novel of the same name (1984) George Orwell forecast a communications revolution with big brother monitoring our every move. Completely by accident this also happens to be the year when Papua New Guinea celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of its foundation. Foundation! Sounds impressive! It was more like squeaking into life. I was not there to witness this moment but my late boss, mentor and friend Bob Miller regaled me with some anecdotes which included his appointment as Postal Inspector (Philatelic) where he served behind the counter selling stamps to collectors in the morning and the afternoons he spent chasing stamp designs in the local bush armed with a Box Brownie Camera. At any rate by sheer faith and perseverance he and his assistant Tom Duncan got their act together. By 1963 they had managed to scrape together some stamp designs which then saw light of day across the Post Office counters."

    Pitcairn Island Dealer's Directory
  • Officially named the Pitcairn Group of Islands, they are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific.

    The islands are inhabited by the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and the Tahitians (or Polynesians) who accompanied them, an event retold in numerous books and films. This history is still apparent in the surnames of many of the islanders. With only about 56 inhabitants, originating from four main families, Pitcairn is the least populous national jurisdiction in the world.

    Qatar Dealer's Directory

  • The Post Office in Qatar began operating modestly in 1950 with just 6 staff. Nevertheless the story begins in earnest in May 1963 when the State of Qatar took full responsibility for its own Postal Services.

    When the first Post Office was opened in Doha in 1950 (there are presently 40 postal branches), the GPC used British stamps but in Rupee denominations and with the country name, "Qatar" over-printed in English. The first date-stamp was used for Registered letters at Doha Post Office on 17 May 1953, and in 1956 and 1960 the first Post Offices outside the capital were opened in Dukhan and Umm Said respectively. This was followed in 1961 with Qatar's issue of the first official postage stamp for the State.


    The GPC was the first Postal Administration in the Gulf to speed the despatch of Sea Mail by air, and charges for letters, post cards, printed matter, parcels, small packets, newspapers and magazines have only increased once in almost 20 years as a matter of GPC policy.

    The world is changing faster than ever before and Postal Administrations are not immune to these changes; the postal future is thus quite daunting. However, in October 2001, specifically with the future in mind the GPC became an independent corporation. This important change is designed to enable the corporation to compete internationally, to meet its customer's needs and to provide a platform for the future service reliability of the business and to benefit the citizen's of Qatar.

    Romania Dealer's Directory
  • The Post in Romanian provinces is known since the Middle Ages. It was created from the need to spread the sovereigns’ orders up to the limits of the territory they owned. Sovereigns’ couriers used horses, dutifully given to them by the inhabitants of the transited villages and towns.

    The first document attesting the existence of postal services in our lands is "The Charter" issued by Sovereign Mircea the Elder, in 1399, at Giurgiu. By this, localities were required to provide the royal couriers with transportation means, horses and two wheels carts, named "remount". At the beginning, the post was mainly based on the transportation of travellers and official mail of the high seniors and sovereigns.

    In the second half of the eighteenth century, Sovereign Constantin Mavrocordat ruled that all couriers should be placed under the authority of the state, with all related expenditures. Accommodations were built for travellers and officers, the so-called postal inns, stables for horses and the transportation of people is accepted with postal carriages, for a fee. Until the Revolution from 1848, the postal services were leased to private individuals, usually for periods of 3 years.

    After 1850, in the administrative cities, the urban postal stations were converted into post offices. At that time, there were 30 postal routes, with postal stations, having Craiova as joint centre. Since 1852, the mail service for private individuals is organized, under the supervision of the Ministry of Finances.

    On November 12th, 1857, a committee gathered in Iasi decides the introduction of postal stamps in Moldova. . .On November 12th, 1857, a committee gathered in Iasi decides the introduction of postal stamps in Moldova...

    Between September 15th and October 9th, 1874, in Berne, the first Postal Congress takes place, deciding upon the creation of the Universal Post Union, Romania being one of the 22 founding members of the organization....

    . . . By Decision no. 371 from July 1998, the Romanian Government has instructed the transformation of the Romanian Post Autonomous Administration into a trading company. By the same Decision, the “Articles of Incorporation" of the Romanian Post was issued (Appendix to the Government Decision no. 371/1998). . . .

    See Also:

    New Zealand's Dealer's Directory
    New Zealand's claim to the region was formalized in 1923, when the Governor-General of New Zealand was appointed as the Governor of the Ross Dependency by an Imperial Order in Council made in London, United Kingdom. Since the Antarctic Treaty came into force in 1961, Article IV of which states "No acts or activities taking place while the present Treaty is in force shall constitute a basis for asserting, supporting or denying a claim to territorial sovereignty in Antarctica or create any rights of sovereignty in Antarctica", most countries do not recognise territorial claims in Antarctica.

    The Dependency takes its name from Sir James Clark Ross, who discovered the Ross Sea, and includes part of Victoria Land, and most of the Ross Ice Shelf. Ross Island, Balleny Islands and the small Scott Island also form part of the Dependency, as does the ice-covered Roosevelt Island.

    Rwanda Dealer's Directory
  • The first post office opened its doors on 18th September 1922 in Kigali. . . the Postal Administration of Rwanda was merged to the Belgian Congo. . .

    Until the independence of Rwanda, 1st July 1962, the Post Office was administered by colonial rule. . .

    When National Independence was declared . . .the former Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications was reattached to the Ministry of Public Works and Mechanization to form one Ministry designated as the Ministry of Public Works and Equipment on 6th February 1963. This Ministry counted, among its attributions, "the management of the Postal Operations".

    The cabinet reshuffle of 6th January 1964 detached certain attributions from the former Ministry of Public Works and Equipment in order to constitute the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications . . . (and) on 6th April 1963 Rwanda was admitted as a member of the Universal Postal Union.

    . . .in 1965, understanding the importance of the country’s postal service, the United Nations Organization quickly gave considerable assistance by constructing the Kigali Posts and Telecommunications building that still stands today. . .

    In 1986, following pressure from the economic and international financial institutions . . . the Government decided to give more autonomy to the postal and telecommunications sectors by creating two entities of a commercial nature dealing respectively with these two services. Thus, the National Post Office was established on March 11, 1992.

    This public institution was placed under the administrative supervision of a Ministry (currently the Ministry of Youth and ICT) having postal matters in its duties ... and is administered as any other business, by a Board of Directors, the day-to-day management being entrusted to a Director General.
