Statistics

An essential part of the SAPPO agenda is to continue in compiling of its own statistics in the field of wholesale, retail and lubes, which provide us with a picture and information about the market and the Slovak consumer. At the same time, comparing and verifying these information with available official statistics to illustrate possible tax evasion remains one of the priority activities that we will continue to pursue.

Cooperation

Cooperation between internal bodies and working sections of the Association, with professional institutions and national authorities and institutions, as well as with partner organizations abroad, mainly FuelsEurope, remains the key priority for SAPPO in 2022 as one of the opportunities to share best practices in the petroleum industry.
