Bangladesh's IT savvy youth boost outsourcing

Computer professionals working for small firms are driving force behind country's nascent outsourcing industry.

    Internet penetration in Bangladesh is one of the lowest in the world, but a growing number of small outsourcing firms offer new opportunities to the country's youth.

    The outsourcing industry is being driven by thousands of IT savvy teenagers, working from home in the country's capital, Dhaka.

    Last year, contract work for foreign firms brought in $36m to the Southeast Asian country.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Dhaka.
