At this workshop the draft mid-term strategy of the European Regulators Group for Postal Services (ERGP) will be developed.
The aim of the strategy is clear: to identify issues in the core postal market that have to be addressed at European level in order to facilitate the recognition of the postal sector as an essential component of the global economy.
To achieve this, the many factors challenging the postal sector, including globalisation, market liberalisation, competition, electronic substitution, the advancement of new technologies, and regional and national inequalities, should be taken into account.
The workshop will be an interactive public debate and will bring together stakeholders' views and expertise on developments and trends in the European postal market in order to increase effectiveness and transparency in the ERGP’s work.
All European postal stakeholders (postal services providers, consumer associations, postal industry associations, labour associations and e-retailers) are invited to express their views on the strategic/core issues at EU level that should be addressed in the ERGP mid-term strategy in the presence of ERGP members.
The resulting document will cover the period 2017-2019. The workshop will take place from 10.00 to 13.00.
