Advertisements will return to YouTube videos produced in Cambodia soon and the Kingdom will be added to YouTube’s partner programme, according to an announcement by the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications.
The notice said that YouTube had temporarily suspended ads on the platform in about 90 countries to carry out a review on its partner programme, a decision that unnerved video producers based in Cambodia who had previously received income from the in-stream advertisements.
Despite not being a part of the partner programme initially, producers in Cambodia were still allowed to monetise channels by basing them overseas.
The ministry added that YouTube identified Cambodia as a market with good characteristics that made it ideal for the programme.
As a result of the recent announcement, the ministry encouraged producers in Cambodia to continue to create original content without infringing copyright laws.
