Magyar Posta Zrt. is lifting the closure of 45 post offices in 32 municipalities under agreements with local governments, and the post offices concerned reopened on January 2, according to a report by news site Telex.
Magyar Posta said that instead of the 1,600 post offices required by law, 2,233 are currently operating nationwide.
The company announced at the end of October that it was temporarily suspending the operation of 366 post offices in 210 municipalities due to the radical rise in energy prices.
In a statement on Monday, it said that the new management of Magyar Posta had been in "intensive and constructive discussions on postal locations" over the past month and a half. Where localities have agreed to pay a predetermined fee for the service of operating those post offices, an agreement has been reached to continue operations.
