DHAKA,– Bangladesh Post Office (BPO) as part of its modernization initiative is going to incorporate Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) software for better e-commerce services.

The software, which is already being used by the National Board of Revenue (NBR), would also enable the BPO to take quick measures for evaluating duty in international digital trade, said a posts and telecommunications division (PTD) press release today.

To this end, a three-member delegation led by Marianne Dumont, regional co-coordinator of ASYCUDA Programme met Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar at his office.

During the meeting, Marianne Dumont ensured the BPO connectivity with ASYCUDA. Other two members of the delegation are United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Director Shamika N Sirimanne and former director of BASIS Mostafizur Rahman.
