The Council of Ministers on September 9 endorsed the “Draft 2022-2030 Cambodia Postal Development Policy”. The policy is aimed at solving public challenges amid increasing demand of internet usage and postal service

“The establishment of the 2022-2030 Cambodia Postal Development Policy is very important as it sets out an action plan for priority areas in response to social and economic development,” said government spokesman Phay Siphan.

The policy serves four purposes: improving the management of the communications sector to promote the quality of service and to protect the interests of users, modernising postal service and infrastructure, expanding post service – especially for digital users – enabling private sectors to use postal services in good faith and promoting the role of the postal sector.

The government said that the development of this sector remains slow, as can be seen in the limited coverage of postal service. Private postal services remain unregulated, due to a lack of policy framework. The establishment of this policy aims to solve all of these problems.
