Bangladesh can build a billion dollar outsourcing business by 2015 if the regulator ensures a business friendly environment, said experts at a seminar.
“We hope outsourcing business in the voice over internet protocol (VoIP) industry will touch more than a billion dollar within next five years,” said Habibullah N Karim, chief executive officer of Technohaven company.
“But the regulator has to create a congenial environment for this.”
VoIP is not only illegal but also an unethical business in the country because of the regulator’s negative stance for the last couple of years, said Karim at a seminar organised by REVE Systems during BASIS SoftExpo 2011.
The stigma involving the VoIP needs to be addressed so that the young talented entrepreneurs feel encouraged to join the outsourcing business.
Speaking at a panel discussion, Sukanta Dey, ex-president of Tata Teleservices, said Bangladesh has a huge potential for outsourcing industry because it produces quality software.
