Bangladeshi IT companies meet potential customers in Denmark (en)
As part of the Netherlands Trust Fund Phase II (NTFII) Bangladesh project, representatives from 12 Bangladeshi Information Technology (IT) companies met with 20+ Danish companies on 7 December to discuss possible areas of business cooperation. More than 60 meetings were organized at the Symbion Centre in greater Copenhagen by the Danish Federation of SMEs (HVR), who are the International Trade Centre's partner in Denmark.
Before the meetings started, Katie Gove from Trellis made a very detailed and knowledgeable presentation about the Danish outsourcing market. She was followed by two speakers from Designit, a Danish company specialized in designing user interfaces for mobiles and tablets. Designit gave a wealth of examples from their work for the banking industry, particularly of note was the industry's increased interest in mobile technologies. BASIS, the Bangladeshi IT association, closed the seminar section of the event with a presentation about Bangladesh, the next global sourcing destination.
The NTF II is a programme funded by the Netherlands’s Centre for the promotion of imports from developing countries (CBI).
