when we registered somewhere in net ltd as a company, the process was very frustrating and took 2-3 months even with professional help. now, nearly six years later, the registration of a new trade organisation took only 24 hrs, with submission of all documents online. congratulations bangladesh, i am extremely proud of you!
i have been actively involved in starting a new trade organisation, the nordic chamber of commerce and industry in bangladesh. we are not a lot of companies from the nordic countries (norway, sweden, denmark, finland and iceland) in bangladesh and it makes sense for us to stand together, reuse earned knowledge and better visualise what we do.
i thought that registering a trade organisation would be more troublesome than registering a company, but poof, the certificate of incorporation was in our inbox with a nice message from the registrar of joint stock of companies within 24 hrs.
this was at least a fantastic example of the new and upcoming digital bangladesh. if citizens and businesses gets access to more e-government services like this, making processes transparent, rapid, easy and user friendly, we are heading for a strong future. we should embrace the good initiatives and push forwards with pride and confidence. go bangladesh, go digital!
