Official name of the country extended by its short form „Czechia“

The Government of the Czech Republic decided to introduce the short country name „Česko“ and to enter officially its foreign language equivalents.

The Government of the Czech Republic decided to introduce the short country name „Česko“ and to enter officially its foreign language equivalents, for example Czechia (English), Tchéquie (French), Chequia (Spanish) or Τσεχία (Greek), into the respective United Nations databases. The country´s official political name „the Czech Republic“ remains in force unchanged and will continue to be used particularly on official occasions. However, it is recommended to opt for the short form in situations where formal country names are not required such as sport, cultural or business events. Nevertheless, the regulation offers enough room for evaluation whether to use the long form or the short one.
