THE STATE-run postal service, Slovenská pošta, will be transformed into a joint-stock company as of July 1. Its headquarters will remain in Banská Bystrica, Slovak MPs decided when passing the bill.
The transformation will include internal restructuring that could result in the reduction of management, the news wire SITA wrote. In addition, a new system of regional postal centres will replace the current post directorates.
The approved bill on transformation should create equal conditions for the operation of Slovenská pošta and other private trade companies that provide similar services.
