    Development and Prospect of China Post
    - An introductin by Liu Liqing, Postmaster General of State Post Bureau, China
    There is a long history of China Post, with over 3,000 years of national post, over 500 years of private post and more than 100 years of contemporary national post. As a key national communication organization and basic industrial department of the modern society, post plays an important role in assurance of the smooth transmission of military and government instructions, maintenance of the unity of the nation and nationalities, promotion of the prosperity of economy, culture and science, as well as the progress of the society. Since the foundation of the People's Republic of China, the government has attached importance to the Post. The Post department made full use of the advantages of "Unity of Post and Telecommunications" and "Unity of Post and Newspapers & Periodicals Service", restoring and developing national post network and post offices, promoting wide-range services through hard work and self-reliance, which has promoted the steady and healthy development of China Post. Despite the interruptions and setbacks during the development, China Post has ensured the message-delivery of all departments of our party, government and national economy as well as people's requirements by relying on the socialist system and the diligence and hard work of our post workers. ...
