In February, the European Commission has positively decided in two cases regarding state support for the Czech Post. Firstly, the European Commission approved the support for the financing of the operation of the information system for data boxes in the years 2018 - 2022. Subsequently, the European Commission has also expressed its agreement with the state aid aimed to finance the so-called "general postal services" in the years 2013-2017.
In both cases, according to the European Commission, the particular state support is compatible with the EU internal market and as such allowed. The State aid involved totaled CZK 4.6 billion.
