Robust telecom sector diversifies employment

BSS

Buoyed by the robust growth in last few years, the telecommunication and information technology sector have generated diversified employment opportunities for the people of Bangladesh, especially for young generation, reports BSS. With the bliss of internet and technology, the young generation engages themselves with Information Technology Enabled services (ITES) which covers the entire gamut of services such as e-commerce, call centers, medical transcription, medical billing and coding, back office operations, revenue claims processing, legal databases, content development, payrolls, logistics management, GIS (Geographical Information System), HR services, web services and many more.

Talking to the news agency, Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) President Mustafa Jabbar termed internet as the “platform” or “highway” and said “the more you will expand the highway, more opportunities will be opened up.”

Although 3G could not offer expected speed but, he hoped, introduction of 4G in early next year would meet the necessity. “Our everyday lives have tremendously been eased by the internet and all contribution for the transformation goes to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her ‘digital Bangladesh’ campaign.”

The BASIS President hoped the Year 2018 would be boomed for ITES as the Finance Minister in the last Digital World announced to withdraw VAT and SD on the internet.

Replying to a query regarding the number of people engaged with ITES, he said BASIS has over 1,000 registered ITES firms but it’s hard to figure out the actual number as many works individually.

Under the “Vision-2021”, the government has aimed to connect cent per cent population with internet and create over 20 lakh employments in ICT sectors in next three years. To expand the ITES, the government is setting up 28 hi-tech parks across the country.

The government has installed 3,600 computer labs in different educational institutions to offer education and internet service to student and youth while 40 cyber centers in 40 universities and university colleges.

Besides, work is going on to install a total of 3,905 Sheikh Russell Digital Computer Labs at primary, and secondary and higher secondary schools as well 65 language training labs in all districts.
