Empost, UAE Ministry ink tie-up
Dubai, February 12, 2011
UAE-based Empost, a leading national player in courier services, recently signed a certificate delivery agreement with UAE’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
Empost will provide its Tawseel service in the delivery of equivalence certificates to enable the delivery of completed certificates, starting February 1, issued by institutions from outside the UAE submitted to the Ministry.
The two sides also signed another agreement covering the provision of the service collection of educational certificates from the customers, submission to the Ministry and delivery back to the customer.
This will be done through special envelopes which will be available through the offices of Empost across the country, with effect from March 1.
“The most significant part of the agreement is that applicants will not be required to visit the Ministry to submit their documents,” said Sultan Al Midfa, CEO of Empost.
“The work of collecting, submitting and delivery will be handled by Empost, giving peace of mind to the Ministry’s customers and easing the pressure on the Ministry's headquarters in Abu Dhabi.'
Saif Rashid Al Mazrouei, Assistant Undersecretary for institutional services and support in the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, said: “The high standards of Empost services have prompted us to entrust to them with the job of acting as a middle man in the certificate equivalence collection and delivery.”
“We are confident that Empost will be able to deliver speedy and efficient services through a network of offices and state of the art systems,’ he added. – TradeArabia News Service
