Introducing a new digital business identification (DBID) system for e-commerce entrepreneurs means that all online businesses, including websites, Facebook pages, and apps, must register through this DBID system.

The commerce minister, Tipu Munshi, inaugurated the e-commerce registration ceremony in his ministry on Sunday. The event was attended by several businesspeople and government officials, including Prime Minister’s Private Industry and Investment Adviser Salman F Rahman and State Minister for ICT Junaid Ahmed Palak. Eleven e-commerce companies were registered for this occasion.
