There are many foreigners continuing jobs at buying houses & doing businesses only with their tourist visas. But these visas exclude such type of work-permit, said Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation (BPC) Chairman Akhtaruzzaman Kabir. At a seminar arranged by BPC and The Bangladesh Travel. He urged the related governmental organization to look out for that, this does not affect the local market. Akhtaruzzaman Kabir also talked about Tourism Corporation’s current venture into the digital platform. That will allow everyone the online access to know about their services and necessary travel information of specific tourism spots. E-Commerce Association’s Vice-President Rezwanul Haque Jami added that, there are over 13 crores mobile-phone users and 6 crores internet user in Bangladesh.
Therefore, integrating all the Tourism services into the digital platform could make it more easily accessible. Such as, buying whole course of travel ticket on the internet. But he sighed about the banks’ disinterest to aid e-commerce in Bangladesh.
