BIDA Chairman urges private sector entrepreneurs to use OSS

Executive Chairman of Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) Md. Sirazul Islam urged private sector entrepreneurs to proactively use One Stop Service (OSS) portal to get 58 services.

At one point of time, it was the private sector who demanded for a single window from where they could get all relevant services to start or run a business and currently 58 different services are being provided through OSS, he said.

Speaking as the chief guest Sirazul said this in a discussion on the use of OSS, arranged by Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) on April 20, 2022.

He also said that BIDA’s registration and RJSC’s name clearance can now be taken within 24 hours through OSS.

In three years of time OSS has been able to provide about 60,000 services and at present, 90 percent of BIDA’s services are being provided in time, he added.

BIDA Chairman requested the private sector to access these digital facilities online with a view to reduce the cost of doing business.

“If private sector shows keen interest to avail services from OSS then hundreds of more services will be added to the board, then the cost of business will automatically come down,” he added.

Dhaka Chamber President Rizwan Rahman said, “We need to change our mindset to use the OSS.”

He also said that DCCI will work to disseminate the positive features of OSS to its members as well as to the business community to make it familiar.

Rizwan also requested BIDA to develop a promotional video tutorial on OSS and upload that to social media for better reach.

Senior Vice President of DCCI Arman Haque, Executive Member of BIDA Mohsina Yasmin, DCCI Vice President Monowar Hossain, and other members of DCCI were present on the occasion.
