Bangladesh moves up four steps in the Global Services Location Index


The latest Global Service Location Index (GSLI) puts Bangladesh four steps ahead from the previous year’s ranking for successes in IT Outsourcing, Back Office or Offshoring, Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO), Voice Service, etc. Bangladesh debuted on the index for the first time in 2014 and was positioned at 26th spot. This year the country ranks in 22nd. World’s top management consulting organization A.T. Kearney has identified Bangladesh among the top outsourcing locations in a new research paper. 
Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) has been supporting A.T. Kearney with information that signifies Bangladesh’s expertise in IT. Also ICT division and BASIS is working together in different programs aimed at country branding in foreign lands.
Highlighting the success, State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak said, the several international recognitions that Bangladesh achieved in past few years were results of many expedient projects undertaken by the government. Bangladesh has achieved many prestigious recognitions including ITU Awards, South South Award, Gartner and A.T. Kearney. However we really need to put our focus on industry development. The government will work with the industry to ensure eGovernance for local market development. 
BASIS President Shameem Ahsan said, majority of the top 50 countries in the Global Service Location Index are Asian. Ranking in 4 steps ahead than previous index proves that we have achieved sustainable growth in the IT sector. We need to be more persistent on local market development if we want to make it to the top 10 in next three years. We must ensure participation of local companies in public procurement by making necessary amendments in Public Procurement Policy and Public Procurement Act.
