Workstream 1: Institutional Capacity Support for Electronic Advanced Data (EAD) Implementation
This workstream aims to develop a fully operational EAD by interfacing and integration of GDCE's ASYCUDAWorld and Cambodia Post's CDS. The workstream features complementary interventions such as awareness-raising, capacity development, and PR support, etc. before and after the deployment of EAD. This workstream also envisages the coordination and capacity development support to the Cambodia Post for expanding strategic partnerships with other operators to enhance its mail and logistics capacity for the small package delivery.
Workstream 2: e-Trade Portal Development and Promotion
This workstream aims to enhance Cambodian SMEs' presence online and their engagement in cross-border e-trade, particularly the exports of their products in small packages, taking full advantage of the enhanced postal logistic capacity and expedited customs clearance procedures of postal items supported under Workstream 1. It also aims to create ‘champions’ and ‘early adopters’ of cross-border e-commerce among SMEs through collaborative activities with SME associations including CWEA, FASMEC, YEAC, etc. This workstream support is expected to enable SMEs to take full advantage of the technologies and the e-trade portal – to be established under this workstream. The project will build up needed capacity of CWEA to become a one-stop service providers providing trade-related information and cross-border e-commerce portal solution to their members and enable them to scale up the service to benefit other Cambodian SMEs.
