Cisco on Wednesday deepened its commitment to accelerate Bangladesh’s digital transformation and showcase how digitization can fuel economic prosperity, global competitiveness and sustainable growth.

They also announced that it had doubled its headcount and office space in Bangladesh to accommodate its expanding operations in the region, as well as opening a depot to serve customers better, they informed at a press conference in the capital, said a press release.

Sudhir Nayar, managing director, Cisco SAARC, said, “Increasing internet penetration, coupled with the rising adoption of mobile devices, proliferation of data, and improving quality of connectivity, is breaking geographical market barriers for businesses and rapidly transitioning Bangladesh into a digital economy. Cisco has been associated with Bangladesh for more than two decades now, and together we have seen the positive impact that digitization brings.”

Bangladesh has already made considerable headway in digitally empowering its citizens, ensuring seamless and affordable connectivity to even the most remote areas, along with mobile banking services for higher financial inclusion.

Additionally, the government is issuing digital IDs to over 100 million citizens, which allows them quick access to essential amenities.

To facilitate the digitization of businesses and help them serve global customers, Cisco has introduced products specifically designed for small and medium enterprises that provide them access to simple, secure, and smart enterprise-class technologies.

These products are helping SMEs enhance their operations, processes, and services to reduce costs, as well as improve workforce productivity.
