PALIKIR, Pohnpei—On January 9th 2020 Postmaster General of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Ginger Porter Mida, informed the Office of the President that the United States Postal Service (USPS) will be increasing postage rates effective January 26th, 2020. Per the terms of the Compact of Free Association, as Amended, the FSM Postal Service is obligated to match (or be more expensive than) USPS postage rates.
“The definite rate has not been decided yet,” Postmaster General Mida wrote in a letter. “I will update [the Office of the President] as soon as we have received the increased rate—but for now, we would like to inform the general public that there will be a rate increase.”
