Myanmar Postal Services will extend its services with the help of Japan as of April 1 this year, according to Shwe Tun Maung, manager of the Myanmar Postal Office.
Under the new scheme, the Myanmar Postal Office will no longer be under the management of the telecommunications and postal training centre, he said.
“In the past, our post office was under the control of the Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications. We want to run it separately with the help of Japan. We will extend our services,” he added.
An official website will be launched within the next month. Up-to-date information on postal code numbers, a wide array of goods and information on fees collected in different regions will be available on the website.
The website will also carry real-time information on parcel arrivals at post offices in 17 townships across the country, including downtown areas in Naypyitaw, Yangon and Mandalay.
The new services also include delivery of birthday gifts, gifts to lovers and bouquets.
Myanmar Postal Services, as well as the Directorate of Telecommunications, will be separated from the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology beginning on April 1.
