The number of post
offices had to be increased to meet a growing demand. From 1989 to 1999 alone,
there was an increase of 22 post offices across Hong Kong. In that same period,
daily mail volume increased from 2.11 million to a whooping 3.5 million and the
staff strength also rose by a thousand.
In August 1995,
the Hong Kong post achieved autonomy in its finances, allowing it to improve
management for the future.
