The Phnom Penh Post has joined the Asia News Network (ANN), an alliance of 23 media companies based in 19 Asian countries.

Janviroj added that Cambodia lies at the heart of reforms and modernization important to the development of Asean and the Asia region.

“I’m proud for The Post to be a part of the Asia News Network. It's especially important, now more than ever, for journalists and news outlets in the region to work together,” said Odom. “To be included among some of the best newspapers in Asia is truly an honor, and it validates the significance of The Phnom Penh Post and its 25-year history here in Cambodia.”

ANN’s members are the China Daily, China Post, Yomiuri Shimbun, The Japan News, The Island, The Korea Herald, The Statesman, The Straits Times, The Nation, Vietnam News, The Daily Star, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Jakarta Post,
