ICT businessmen are going through a tough time these days with unstable conditions in technology business, rising dollar value, banks’ obligation to process LCs. We have been advising the government, National Board of Revenue and policy makers in several meetings to address this situation. Besides, we have given special importance on Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IOT) and Blockchain training in the future plans of the association under the guidance of Prime Minister’s ICT Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy to build a Smart Bangladesh announced by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. If necessary, the members of the association will be trained by bringing experienced trainers from abroad.”

He also said that we have already handed over the warranty policy to the Director General of the National Consumer Rights Directorate. Activities are also ongoing with MRP policy. The current membership of the organization which started in 1987 has exceeded 2500. We are working to include all the IT businessmen of the country in this organization. Our two new branches have started at Tangail and Rangpur.

At present, we are the only and largest organization in the country to bring technology industry to people's doorstep with 10 branches. BCS activities will continue to bring innovation to business by introducing BCS members to the latest technology. An effective committee is formed to provide maximum opportunities to the members, he concluded.
