The government is going to start a registration process for freelancers so that they can avail bank loans and other facilities, said Prime Minister’s Private Industry and Investment Adviser Salman F. Rahman at view-exchange held with freelancers who engage with the global online marketplace. “Some 6 to 7 lakh IT freelancers are working in the country. If we can get them registered, one billion Dollar will be added annually in foreign remittance,” he said.

The discussion on Sept 5 was attended by Honourable ICT state minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak, PM’s Private Industry Adviser Salman F Rahman, PMO Principal Secretary Nojibur Rahman and BIDA chief Md. Sirazul Islam.
