PHNOM PENH, April 4 (Xinhua) -- The state-owned Cambodia Post has seen a 71-percent increase in revenue in 2016 thanks to rising consumer confidence in the enterprise's service, Cambodia Post's general director Ork Bora said Tuesday.
The national mail service provider collected 9.09 million U.S. dollars in revenue last year, up 71 percent from the 5.32 million U.S. dollars in 2015, he said.
"We are still the largest mail service provider in Cambodia," he told reporters, adding that currently, there are more than 20 postal service companies in the country.
Bora said that the Cambodia Post has planned to launch an online shopping platform sometime this year in order to tap the current rise in e-commerce activity.
Online shopping is going popular in this Southeast Asian nation in recent years due to the rise in internet users. According to the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, about 8 million out of the Cambodia's 15 million people have access to the internet.
