Given the fact that the Czech Republic is a newly regulated market, the government is not rushing into making decisions that will affect the taxation and the competitiveness of the country. Currently, the regulators know that they don’t have a perfect solution for the industry, but are waiting to adjust this accordingly. The panel is very important for the Czech industry and all international operators as the latest amendments will be explained.
