Tomislav Šipek, 21 September 2019

"البريد المصري" (English: Egyptian Post), sometimes referred to as Egyptian National Post Organization (ENPO) was established formally on January 2, 1865 although in modern times, its direct predecessor was a postal office by Italian Carlo Meratti, living in Alexandria, who established a post office to send and receive mail to and from foreign countries as early as 1821. After he passed away, his nephew, Titokini, established Posta Europea with another partner. This company, a public trust, that already had offices in several cities (mainly due to the railroad expansion in the country starting in 1855-1856), was purchased by the government on October 29, 1864, the date recognized as the foundation, although it started operations the next year.
