To see the real faces of our country benefit from e-commerce – people who don’t have the ease of access to information that we do in urban centres such as Dhaka, this is an immensely fulfilling experience, and one of the main directives of our Honorable Prime Minister’s Digital Bangladesh Initiative. I can only wait eagerly for the expansion of this initiative around the country,” said Misha Ali, Director, Marketing at Bikroy.
