Stymied but switched on: Bangladesh’s online workforce
Bangladesh is now the second-largest supplier of online labour in the world, according to the Oxford Internet Institute.
Watch out India, Bangladesh’s online producers are hard on your heels.
With nearly two-thirds of its population under 25 years of age, Bangladesh has a vast supply of potential new workers to add to the world’s digital pool.
That is providing job opportunities to an army of freelance staff, such as stay-at-home mothers.
In Dhaka, there is a slow internet pipeline and a relatively small number of highly skilled staff are somewhat slowing its digital rise.
