ABSTRACT
The Council of Ministers has embraced a draft Commission Directive on competition in Postal Services in Europe. The Directive will push forward the gradual progress toward full competition in postal services across the European Union. Under the Directive, member states need to open up substantial additional sections of the market to competition from 2003 and 2006. They must also define further steps to be taken towards the completion of the Internal Market for postal services.
