Swiss Post received the report of the committee chaired by former Council of States member Christine Egerszegi today. Swiss Post CEO, Roberto Cirillo, will set out the company’s position on this report following a thorough examination of the committee’s proposals. Irrespective of the report’s content, Swiss Post welcomes the wide-ranging discussion initiated on the future of the universal postal service. The service must always be aligned with the needs of Swiss residents to make their everyday lives easier, and in tune with the needs of companies in Switzerland in order to boost their competitiveness.
Swiss Post received the report of the expert committee chaired by former Council of States member Christine Egerszegi today. We will be thoroughly analysing the report in the coming days, after which we will give a detailed statement. It would be improper for us to comment on the report today without first examining each individual point in depth. We ask for your understanding that we can only comment on general strategic thrusts today. Roberto Cirillo, Swiss Post CEO, will be speaking about the report and Swiss Post’s position in a virtual Point de Presse on the morning of 4 March 2022 (see registration below).
The Federal Council and Parliament will be drawing on the expert report as a basis for discussion concerning the public service. The report’s projected timeline is focused on 2030 and it will take some time for discussions to establish new regulatory frameworks.
