Statement regarding the press concessions

The Belgian Federal Council of Ministers has decided to extend the current press concessions with bpost for a period of two years at the same conditions, as specified in the current concessions. The decision will be notified to the European Commission.

The provision of services of general interest remains a priority for bpost, which is why bpost is enthusiast to continue this public mission. The daily distribution of newspapers and magazines nationwide guarantees a uniform and non-discriminatory access to information, regardless of the citizen's residence. It fosters plurality, freedom and quality of the press, an important element of our democracy.
