Bangladesh NEXT. Next IT Destination.

Bangladesh NEXT. Next IT Destination:
The demographic advantage, the stability and the social developments have set the platform for Bangladesh to emerge as the one of the next large players of global service outsourcing market. As outsourcing costs in traditional countries like China, India and Philippines are rising dramatically and global clients are increasingly looking for diversification of sourcing portfolio, Bangladesh is surely the Next best alternative.
Bangladesh possesses one of the most attractive population demography in the world. This is a country powered by youth. In terms of number of youth population, Bangladesh is among top ten countries of the world and top five within Asia. This unique age demography makes Bangladesh as one of the best attractive country for service outsourcing (ITES/BPO, Software, Call centre etc.).

A significant portion of the youth population is proficient in English. Within the non-speaking developing countries, Bangladesh education system has the 3rd largest number of enrollment in English courses at secondary and higher secondary level. Because of this second-language advantage, the country is surely one of the natural choices for service outsourcing for English speaking North American countries.

Adoption to new digital lifestyle among young generation is very high. The urban youth are quite tech savvy and always keep pace with different modern tech-driven lifestyle updates (e.g. in terms of Facebook users, Bangladesh ranks within top twenty in the world. The country already has over 2 million facebook users).

Over 10 million (around 7 percent of total population) citizens of the country work outside the country (4th highest in the world), in different parts of the world. This has contributed significantly in cross-cultural adaptability skill of the professionals. A significant number of the overseas people are technology professionals. They are working successfully in different leading technology companies at different parts of the world. This technology skilled diaspora can also be instrumental in outsourcing boom (as it has been the case in India).

Within the country, the rapid technological development in recent years has set the tone for significant growth in technology driven service industry. Mobile growth in the country is one of the highest in the developing world. Major technology infrastructure like country-wide fiber connectivity, Wi-Max broadband, 3G are being implemented at quick pace.

During last few decades, the country has achieved significant social sector development, particularly in education and health. As recognition of this, Bangladesh has recently won UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Award.

During last decade, Bangladesh economy has emerged as one of the most stable developing economies of Asia. Helped by very strong growth in both export and foreign remittance, the local currency (Taka) is one of the most stable currencies.

Powered by people Over 25,000 IT engineers are working in over 600 software and IT service companies: around 150 of these companies are specialized in serving overseas clients.

Specialized IT Education in Bangladesh is well established at the graduation and post graduation levels. Over 90 universities and 700 colleges across the country offer IT education programs. Every year, over 6,000 IT graduates come out of these universities and colleges.

A large part of these IT graduates also possess global IT vendor certifications (e.g., from Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Sun) on top of their academic degrees.

Excellence of IT workforce from Bangladesh is a well-accepted fact at home and abroad. Over 10,000 IT professionals from Bangladesh are working successfully in various IT companies in USA including Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Sun, Oracle, Texas Instruments, Cisco, Nortel, and Lucent – to name a few.

Bangladesh Government and the IT industry have taken up aggressive plans to scale up the number of IT workforce to meet the increasing demand. The plans include national skills assessment and enhancement programs for IT professionals, increasing the number of yearly IT graduates to 10,000 and development of outsourcing focused specific skill sets.

Government Support to IT outsourcing: Software and IT Services have been declared by the Government as a ‘High Priority’ export sector.

All Software and IT Services companies including those having foreign ownerships have been exempted from Income Tax until 2011.

Special government sponsored long-term equity fund and short term working capital financing are offered to IT companies.

Since 1996, Government has been allowing zero/low tariff for computers and other capital goods required for software industry.

Special Hi-Tech and Software Technology Parks are being built by the government to facilitate all the infrastructural supports needed by outsourcing companies.

ICT Policy 2009 has been approved by the Govt. of Bangladesh in June 2009

A Roadmap to transform Bangldesh into ‘Digital Bangldesh’ has also been formed

Bangladesh Central bank takes step to rev up ICT business

Central bank takes step to rev up ICT business
By: Financial Express

The central bank has allowed online transactions for the country's information and communication technology (ICT) firms aiming to expedite ICT related businesses, officials said on September 02, 2010.Under the new provisions, banks are allowed to remit up to US$ 10,000 on behalf of ICT or software firms in a calendar year for the purposes of international alliances like software registration fee, domain registration and hosting fees and server maintenance fee without prior approval of the Bangladesh Bank (BB). 

ICT businessmen welcomed the BB's latest move, saying that it would facilitate their businesses through allowing internet transactions."Bangladesh opens a new chapter of e-business allowing internet transactions," Chairman of the committee on international marketing of the Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) Shameem Ahsan told the FE.
He also said it would help to create new employment opportunity through boosting ICT related businesses including software exporting across the world. 

Within the limit of $10,000 in foreign exchange authorised dealer banks, officially known as ADs, may issue international card (IC) favoring a nominated official of ICT or software firm for US$1000 with the recommendation of the Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS), the central bank said in a circular, issued Thursday. 

"As a part of ongoing liberalisation of BB, We've incorporated internet/ online transactions particularly for ICT firms into our regulations. We hope that it would be a milestone for digital transaction of the country's banking industry," a BB senior official told the FE.The IC may be refilled for another $1000 subject to production of documents showing the fact that the previous transactions were carried out for the purposes."The ADs shall ensure that the aggregate amount of refills of IC and outward payment through other means do not exceed $10,000 in a calendar year," the circular added.In the context of web based trade, the foreign buyer settles the payment through international credit cards (ICC) using internet/web. 

To accommodate such internet/web generated payment to beneficiary account, it has been decided to allow ADs to work as 'Acquiring Banks' for realisation of internet/web generated payment favouring BASIS member ICT/software firms registered and operating in Bangladesh.
"…ADs shall have to comply with the applicable regulation of foreign exchange transactions, AML/CFT, payment and settlement systems and other relevant laws/regulations in force and report the transactions with monthly returns to Bangladesh Bank in the relevant schedules/statements," it noted.

Bangladesh among best spots for IT outsourcing

Bangladesh among best spots for IT outsourcing
By: The Daily Star  December 27, 2010 

Bangladesh has carved its place among the world's best destinations for IT outsourcing, largely thanks to its low cost, according to a study by a leading research and consulting firm.
Bangladesh usually offers an attractive cost proposition for the investors, as its low salary level and low-cost of living are ideal for jobs that are commoditised and have low risk, said the study conducted by Gartner (It delivers technology research to global technology business leaders) in its annual listing of top countries for IT outsourcing globally.
“Bangladesh is an emerging country from an offshore location perspective, but ranks poorly in language, infrastructure and data and intellectual property security,” the research said.
“Although it offers a good cost proposition, the government has to address many issues such as education, infrastructure and data security or IP protection in order to propel the top ranks,” said Gartner, which has put Bangladesh on its list of top 30 destinations for global IT outsourcing for 2010-11.
This is the first time that Bangladesh has been listed in the top ranking by any global research company on IT outsourcing and has been placed on par with China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam in Asia.
“The achievement is significant given the growing potential of Bangladesh as an attractive IT outsourcing destination,” said Mahboob Zaman, president of the Bangladesh Association for Software and Information Services (BASIS), at a press conference in the capital yesterday.
“However, it would require proper government policy support in addressing the shortcomings identified in the study to keep up the same rating,” he added.
Bangladesh has debuted in the list along with eight other countries that have made it for the first time to the Top 30 of the Gartner ranking.
“The country offers an attractive cost proposition, given its low salary levels and low cost of living,” said the study, which took into account ten separate criteria for rating the individual destinations.
The criteria include language, government support, labour pool, infrastructure, educational system, cost, political and economical environment, cultural compatibility, global and legal maturity as well as data and Intellectual Property Security and Privacy.
Bangladesh has been ranked 'very good' in the criteria of cost, according to the Gartner findings while rating 'fair' in all criteria apart from the areas of language, infrastructure and data and IP security and privacy.
Noting that Bangladesh's cost of living is one of the lowest in the world, the report found that the median salary per annum of a software engineer or developer in Bangladesh is about $5,070, while the median salary of a senior software engineer is $7,300 and that of an IT manager is $9,734.
“In recent years, the government has taken several bold steps in boosting the country's IT industry, which has been partly reflected in this rating,” said State Minister for Science and ICT Yeafish Osman.“Most recently, the office of electronic signature certifying authority has been set up for authorising a digital signature system, while a cyber security policy is going to be formulated and cyber tribunals are going to be formed to address the cyber crime issue,” he added. 
The Gartner report finds the country's PC penetration and teledensity 'low' and the overall English language competency 'poor' while stating that the essential infrastructure elements such as electricity, airways and rail networks are not up to the global standard.
