COMPETITION ON THE POSTAL SERVICE MARKET IN POLAND
Services play an important role in the Polish economy alongside industry, construction, banking or agriculture. On the European Union markets services represent the dominant area of economic activity. This position is exemplified by the number of employees in that sector of the European Union economy providing jobs to about 75% of the total EU professionally active population. Results of the analysis of source materials concerning the level of competition in the postal market indicate its rapid development, including fierce competition in the sector of services allowed for every operator after obtaining the concession as well as completely deregulated postal services. In the reserved services market only the monopoly of the Polish Post Office continues in providing services of general nature.
