Some foreign countries have expressed keen interest in getting information and technology services from Bangladeshi companies thanks to the great strides made by the country towards developing the ICT sector in recent years.

As part of this improvement, Dohatec New Media, a prominent Bangladeshi ICT company, has successfully developed and deployed an electronic government procurement (e-GP) system in Royal Government of Bhutan which is currently functioning in Bhutan, and

the first contract was awarded on November 22.

Luna Shamsuddoha, chairman of Dohatec New Media, told The Independent that the Maldives and Congo have expressed interest to employ the company to develop their respective ICT sectors.

She said that the digital e-GP system ensures transparency and accountability by reducing corruption.

Luna also said that the government can issue a tender through this system at a minimum cost. This would not have been possible without the development of the ICT sector. “It will boost direct growth of GDP,” she added.

Bhutan’s minister for information and communication, Lyonpo Dina Nath Dhungyel, Maldives’s deputy minister of defence and national security, Thoriq Ali Luthfi, and senior adviser to the prime minister of Congo, Dieudonne Kalombo Nkole, visited the Dohatec New Media House in Purana Paltan Line of Dhaka yesterday morning.

Luna Shamsuddoha welcomed and thanked them for coming over. Later, she gave them a presentation on different software packages developed by Dohatec for international organizations like the World Bank, PAHEF, and different governments.

The e-GP system was demonstrated in detail. The use of the same system by the Bhutan government was shown live.

The visitors showed considerable interest in the solutions relating to the identity space, especially multi-biometric duplication of 80 million voter records, prepared by Dohatec.

The transfer of government payments to poor people during lean periods was of particular interest to them.

Dohatec prepares solutions for social safety net space as well.

After visiting the Dohatec New Media house, the ministers praised the company for its contribution to the technology sector.

Lyonpo Dina Nath Dhungyel said: “Thank you for everything. You have made your presence in Bhutan already. We look forward to working with you for a long time to come.”

Dieudonne Kalombo Nkole said: “All I have heard from Dohatec about ICT gives me hope that the world will be a better place in future. With Dohatec, we can be ready for tomorrow.”

Thoriq Ali Luthfi said: “It was a good learning experience. Your hospitality has humbled me. The way you continue to promote human capital, your chief enabler in progress and prosperity, has left me speechless. I wish your company well and hope that we have opportunities to learn from you. May Allah bless you all!”

Talking to this correspondent, Lyonpo Dina Nath Dhungyel said that Bangladesh has made rapid progress in the digital sector.

“You have made tremendous progress since 2014, when I had first come here. You have presence in many other countries around the globe now. We have started software business with Bangladeshi companies. This has been made possible just because of the advancement of the country,” he noted.

“The young people of Bhutan have also started developing the country’s ICT sector. We are taking assistance from Bangladeshi companies like Dohatec in doing software business,” he added.

Thoriq Ali Luthfi said Bangladesh will develop its ICT sector within a short period as it possesses skilled human resources.

Dohatec issues digital and SSL certificates; it also carries out PKI enablement. It is an independent software vendor (ISV) and technology firm that has been developing solutions for enterprises in North America, Asian and Europe for nearly 25 years. It provides enterprise software and IT services to fulfil the needs of corporations, institutions, and government agencies in niche markets around the globe.
