| The origin
of "PUASP" is the postal agreement conclued in Bogota
(Colombia) in 1838 and signed by Ecuador,Venezuela,Colombia giving
birth to the "Grand Colombia Union" with close'union and total frienship
between parties.Ten years later,this example of international cooperation
will lead to the Lima'convention in 1848 between Bolivia,Chile,Colombia,Ecuador
En 1864,again in Lima,a new union and postal collaboration is agreed by Bolivia,Colombia,
Guatemala,El Salvador,Venezuela and Peru with scope of facilitating and improving to a very large scale the postal relationships between all these countries.
On july 17th 1911,the "Bolivariano postal agreement"is concluded in Caracas (Venezuela) with Bolivia,Colombia,Ecuador,Peru and Venezuela as parties.
Several congress,beginning with the 1911's one,participate to the evolution of that history and are presented later on :
