Another key strategic issue for posts is the utilisation of the retail network and improving customer access to services.

The SingPost chief executive says his company is currently striving to build added convenience and choices into its retail network, to meet its customers’ lifestyle needs.

These are very essential need based services including personal and housing loans, financial planning, and remittances \services, not only for local people but for foreign workers who can send their money back home through a trusted network.”

There is also collaboration with government agencies to offer services such as passport renewal and visa applications. “Generally, the products and services offered through our post offices must be aligned with our infrastructure and meet our customers’ needs too,” he emphasises
