EC looks into state support of Czech Post

(ČIA) The European Commission (EC) has begun investigating whether the sum of up to CZK 7.5bn which the government is preparing to pay to Czech Post for the 2018-2022 period for the provision of basic postal services all over the country at affordable prices constitutes a breach of law on state support. Competitors of the main Czech postal operator complained about the disproportionately high compensation in November 2019. In February 2018, the Commission concluded that the compensation for the Czech Post for fulfilling the duty of universal service between 2013 and 2017 was in accordance with EU regulations.
