State-owned entity Zimpost has been challenged to adopt the electronic posting system to ensure the delivery of modernised services to the citizenry.
The trajectory towards an upper middle income economy by 2030 is underpinned by a national priority area of creating a digital economy.
It is against this background that government commissioned the Zimpost digitalisation programme in Harare this Monday.
Guest of Honour at the commissioning, Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Minister Honourable Jenfan Muswere noted that the launch of the Zimpost digital platform is a landmark development in the country.
“The transformation of Zimpost from a traditional post office to a digitalised post needs the adoption of the e- post tenets that will enable Zimpost to deliver services on the electronic and mobile platforms,” noted Muswere.
Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe Director-General Mr Gift Machengete, who was represented by Mr Kennedy Dewera, pledged support for the creation of a digital economy.
“We will continue providing assistance to the ministry so that it achieves its goals,” he said.
The newly launched platform will facilitate online shopping for the convenience of the public.
