Emilia Eino takesing up her post

ICT is her game

23 July 2021 | People

Emilia Eino has been in the ICT industry for the past ten years. She first served as a development planner responsible for ICT infrastructure development and later a policy analyst responsible for institutional policy regulation and monitoring in the ICT sector within the ministry of information and communication technology. During her tenure with the government and CRAN, she also served as the chairperson of the Post and Telecommunications Industry Skills Committee (ISC) of the Namibia Training Authority (NTA) responsible for the development of ICT units, standards and qualifications for the ICT sector in Namibia.

Endorsed by the ministry of information and communications technology through the ministry of international relations and cooperation, Eino will now be representing Namibia on the administrative council of the Pan-African Postal Union (PAPU), an organ of the African Union, for the period 2021 to 2025.

The headquarters of PAPU are in Arusha, Tanzania. Eino will be working remotely and in direct contact with the Postal Union. She will only be travelling to Arusha and other PAPU member states to attend the council’s meetings.

The role of PAPU

PAPU makes the lives of its member states easier in terms of conveying mail and parcels in the postal value chain and network, ensuring that the process remains smooth in the single postal territory. The Union advocates for a single African postal territory where member states are not required to have bilateral agreements with any of the other member states. The representation of Namibia on the council will therefore build the capacity relating to research and development, policy, regulatory and technical matters.

One of the many benefits of PAPU is access to an adequate digital national addressing system in Africa. This is a sound digital system likely to deliver a wide spectrum of benefits beyond the postal sector and is likely to also have some contribution on social welfare improvement in the country, including services that can be linked to a digital national addressing system, such as ambulance emergency services, firefighting, and police.

Her work at CRAN

In 2017 Eino joined the CRAN family and was responsible for the establishment of the postal department and all its operations. Eino introduced the regulatory framework for the postal sector and the licencing regime for Namibia in line with the Communications Act (No. 8 of 2009). In addition to that, CRAN was able to license Nampost as the designated postal operator.

Eino represented Namibia at various international platforms including designated and specialised committees and taskforces entrusted to deal with regulatory and technical matters emanating from the Universal Postal Union (UPU), an organ of the United Nations, as well as the Southern African Development Community (SADC), and the Communications Regulators Association for Southern Africa (CRASA).

Eino has not only built various working relationships within CRAN but also with external stakeholders and other regional postal regulators, that there was no other choice but to have her recommended for the appointment to the PAPU administrative council.
