    Minister for communication, Science and Technology said yesterday that physical address and post code are crucial for economic, business, political and delivery of social services in achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2025.
    Professor Makame Mbarawa added that the system will help society to access important services such as fire and ambulance, defence and security, health and education and financial services.
    He said: "Physical address and post code system will allow easy access for the delivery of social services including water, power, gas, security and global positioning system for traffic administering in cities….for the business men it will help in easy procurement services while at home."
    Mbarawa made the remarks at a media briefing in Dar es Salaam on "Addressing for the World, addressing for everyone" initiative during the appointment of Prof Anna Tibaijuka, Minister for Lands, Housing and Human Settlements Development, a Universal Postal Union Ambassador (UPU).
    In her acceptance speech, Tibaijuka said physical address and post code system is an important infrastructure that coordinates the people, government and business society at both local and international level.
    She said her ministry has the major responsibility of land distribution for people in making sure everyone gets quality residence and good house, adding that she would be at the front line pushing for achievement of the programme.
    "I will use the given time effectively and I will be at the front to push for the programme achievement…..It will be a wastage of time insisting for other countries to put more efforts on the programme while there are delays in my country," said Tibaijuka.
    She called for programme support from public, stakeholders and world political leaders in their countries, World Bank and other United Nations programmes like UNDP, UN HABITAT, ITU and UNESCO to push for this development programme.
    UPU was established in 1874, with headquarters in Berne, Switzerland. It is the second oldest international organisation worldwide, currently with 192 member countries and is the primary forum for cooperation between postal sector players.
