BASIS Softexpo 2008
The national trade association of Bangladesh’s IT companies and software companies is the Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services, also referred to as BASIS. To lure foreign investors, developers and service providers to the ICT market in Bangladesh, BASIS proudly hosts an expo each year. This expo serves to expose the market in Bangladesh to international influences and to promote the local companies and agencies abroad.
