Internet coverage

Internet coverage

State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Tarana Halim on Sunday said most parts of the country would come under internet coverage by 2021.  This is an encouraging piece of news indeed. She said her ministry is working to that end as mobile internet connectivity has been the key for rapid development. According to the latest BTRC statistics the number of internet users is 80.166 million in the country.

This is the age of information technology and access to internet has become a vital part of modern life. When the world is surging ahead, we cannot lag behind. The way IT sector is developing in the country, time is not far away that a huge number of youth in the country will get the job opportunity. It is the IT sector that has emerged as a boon for the vast community of youth in the country. What is needed is exploration of the sector fully and effectively.

Online outsourcing can contribute to reduction of unemployment problem in the country significantly. The opportunity for getting government jobs is very limited. After completion of education, thousands of youths are crowding the job market every year. But how many of them are lucky enough to get the same? Private sector is also not expanding in the country in an encouraging manner to provide increasing number of aspirants with jobs. In the circumstances, educated youths in their droves are bearing the brunt of joblessness. Steeped in frustration, many youths are going abroad spending huge sums of money in search of greener pastures.

There are immense possibilities for the educated youths of the country to become self-reliant through online outsourcing. It can be an excellent opportunity for the young people to get rid of the scourge of unemployment. They can also create employment opportunities for other unemployed youths. It is very important to enhance skill on internet to become good freelancers for earning foreign currency. The youths can come forward with their education, particularly good command on English language, to expand the horizon of employment opportunities to live a life with dignity.

There is no age bar for online outsourcing. People from 17 years to 70 years, including housewives and girls, can be engaged in this job. The people connected with the outsourcing should be imparted adequate training under government and private initiatives. The government should strengthen the ICT sector to achieve the goal. The young entrepreneurs should be provided with bank loans on easy terms and conditions and other logistic supports.
