The Phnom Penh Post, Cambodia’s leading English daily, has joined Asia News Network (ANN), an alliance now comprising 23 media in 19 Asian counฌtries, including The Nation.

The Phnom Penh Post’s CEO, Alex Odom, on Thursday signed an agreement with Pana Janviroj, executive director of ANN, in the Cambodian capital city, witฌnessed by Torben Stephan, director of Konrad Adenauer Siftung Media Programme Asia.

ANN is the world’s most active media alliance, established in 1999. Members exchange news and commentaries on a daily basis to enhance Asian reports on global affairs. The alliance operates ediฌtorial support offices in Delhi, Bangkok and Phnom Penh with daily e-newsletter and website (asianews.network). It also hosts conferences and workshops related to regional affairs.

The ANN charter allows for each country to have one English language media as a member and one vernacular media. In Cambodia, Rasmei Kampuchea the leading Cambodian language daily, is also a member.

“The Phnom Penh Post will further strengthen ANN as a dynamic voice of Asia at the time when the region is undergoing rapid changes – politically, economically and socially,” said Janviroj.

Added Alex Odom, CEO of the Phnom Penh Post: “I’m proud for the Post to be a part of the Asia News Network. It’s espeฌcially important, now more than ever, for journalists and news outlets in the region to work together. To be included among some of the best newspapers in Asia is truly an honour, and it validates the sigฌnificance of the Phnom Penh Post and its 25year history here in Cambodia.”

Founded in 1992, the Phnom Penh Post was initially published as a fortฌnightly newspaper, before becoming a daily in 2008.

It is the oldest existing independent newspaper in any language in Cambodia, and is read by thousands of foreigners and Cambodians, with subscribers in 35 countries around the globe.

Janviroj added that Cambodia lies at the heart of the development of the Mekong, Asean and Asia and is going through reforms and modernisation important to the development of the region. “The Phnom Penh Post is central to the reporting on Cambodia.
