Abstract

The Community's postal sector is subject to many forces. Technological change in other sectors has promoted indirect competition with postal services. Within the sector, there has been a succession of competition cases. Most importantly, customer needs are evolving, probably more rapidly than in the past. Action therefore seems imperative. If it is not taken, events will significantly alter the landscape, and it will become less and less easy for the Community to play its full part in helping to shape a sector which is so important to its commercial and social life. This Green Paper seeks to launch the debate on the Community's postal sector with the following objectives: (i) to provide a thorough-going analysis of the current situation; (ii) to discuss what should be the Community objectives for its postal sector and whether action is needed at Community level to achieve them; (iii) to discuss how these objectives could be achieved and suggest detailed options.
