Abstract

This document (of 362 pages) contains the proceedings of a one-day roundtable exploring the regulatory and competition issues arising in the course of deregulation of the postal sector. The roundtable was held at the OECD in February 1999. The publication includes submissions from 16 OECD member countries describing in detail the nature of postal regulation applying in the sector and the competition issues that have arisen. The document also includes a background paper prepared by the OECD secretariat summarising the economic characteristics of the postal sector, the prevalence of non-commercial service obligations and the resulting impact on competition and the potential for anticompetitive behaviour. The document includes a summary of the oral discussion at the roundtable and a five-page executive summary setting out the key ideas to emerge.
