constantly changing postal market."
"Our clear objective remains keeping the long-established company Austrian Post
fit for the future", states CEO Georg Pölzl. "We have to take advantage of

on an ongoing basis. Our business operations must be even more strongly oriented
to our customers. The Management Board along with our top executives and all
employees will also succeed in achieving this goal in the future".
