Salman F.Rahman

Beximco Pharma is one of the limited few enterprises in Pharmaceutical Industry, which crossed the boundaries of the country to get established in the international arena with their own identity, coverage and reputation. Wise circles at home and abroad labeled Beximco Pharma as one of the top pharmaceutical manufacturing enterprises much earlier. In true sense, for transformation from that position of one of a few, to the country’s best pharmaceutical enterprise of today, the person whose talent, devotion, diligence, sincerity and far-sightedness are intimately blended, is the pioneer personality of the group Mr. Salman F.Rahman also the Deputy Chairman of the group. Today, due to his competent leadership, Beximco Pharma is considered                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               as a dependable pharmaceutical exporter to USA. After emergence as a successful exporter to U.S.A., another feather was added to their crown of success by way of inclusion of the enterprise as a member of London Stock Exchange. Through this event, not only a Bangladeshi Company entered London Stock Exchange for the first time but also any Company even from amongst the countries of the Muslim world entered London Stock Exchange for the first time. In this regard Mr.Salman F.Rahman says he started to think, when neighboring India could export Medicines worth Rs.1400 Cr. a year then why could not we be able? Such precise far reaching thoughts could bring BEXIMCO to today’s position. Not only his own enterprise but also the entire Pharmaceutical industry of Bangladesh got established in honorable position amongst world’s arena for which Mr.Salman F.Rahman’s role is undeniable. In recent past, his election to the position of the President of the Pharmaceutical Industry Association proves recognition of confidence of others in his leadership. Then not only in the field of trade and commerce but also Salman F.Rahman aroused with patriotism, plays an effective role in politics. With the resolve of serving the country, by not keeping his position direct, he is indirectly involved in politics. He is the Advisor to the President of Awami League on private sector related affairs. Beximco Group with employment of 25000 will expand far more with merit and intellect of Salman F.Rahman. Everybody expects reputation and business success of this enterprise will grow further and further in the interest of the country.

Private sector urged to develop own system

Closing ceremony of tech summit held

Curbing dependency on foreign expertise in terms of providing information security, Salman F Rahman, vice chairman of Beximco Group, yesterday said that our private sector should come forward to develop its own information security system.
He was speaking at the closing ceremony of the two-day SAARC Tech Summit 2016, jointly organised by the by CTO (Chief Technology Officer) Forum, Bangladesh and INFOCOM India at the BIAM auditorium in the capital.
SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industries (SAARC CCI) is providing assistance to the summit.

Salman F Rahman, the founder chairman of SAARC CCI, termed the recent two incidents of Bangladesh Bank (BB) cyber heist and ATM forgery as two serious breeches in our information security system.
He said: “We should develop our own expertise to full-proof our own security system. Instead of depending on the foreign companies, we should develop our own companies to do that.”
He said that our bureaucrats have a certain mind set that only foreign nationals have the expertise to do the job. “I believe our young generation has huge potentials and they will be able to do it. Time and again they have proven that.”
He said that right policy making decisions could do wonders for a country like Bangladesh. “Two decisions of allowing back-to-back letter of credit and bonded warehouse have done wonders in our garment sector.”
Those decisions were taken by some brave government officials who took the decision against the tides. “I believe if our young generation approach the government in proper manner and make the decision makers understand the value of their proposal, they will get the policy support.”
Rahman said, seven years ago when Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina unveiled her dream of creating a Digital Bangladesh, many people said that such dream could not be materialised.
“But in last seven years, we have come a long way and have achieved a lot of success in our IT sector. Lot more has to be done but so far our achievement has been remarkable.”
About the CTO Forum, he said that now people in Bangladesh are familiar with the term chief technology officer.
“Only decades ago, people were not even familiar with the term chief executive officer (CEO) as private sector didn’t flourish then. Now we have established CTO culture which proves how far we have come from that point.”
He said: “Everything is done digitally these days. Internationally technology has reached to such an extent, that you just can’t go back to manual platform anymore.  For that, security of information has become very important.”
Stressing on the importance of ensuring information security, he said that like quality control and internal audit department which run independently within an organisation, time has come to establish independent cyber security department too.
He termed Beximco group as pioneer in different technologies in Bangladesh, he said that he was the first person to bring personal computer and banking software in Bangladesh.
“I also brought the first fax machine in Bangladesh. When I brought it I needed 26 different signatures, the last one was from the then President Hussain Muhammad Ershad.”
Rahman later presented awards among four technology leaders representing four countries-Bhutan, India, Nepal and Srilanka.
Drugay Rana, CIO of Dungsam Cement Corporation Ltd, Dr Sundar Raj Vijaynagar, chief technology officer and group head of IT of SREI Equipment Finance Limited, Pramod Kumar Parmar, director, Backbone Transmission Directorate, Nepal telecom and Ramesh Shanmuganathan, executive vice president and group CEO of John Keels Holdings PLC received awards from their respective countries.
Shafquat Haider, chairman, Council for Communication & IT, SAARC CCI, N I Khan, former secretary, KK Mahapatro, organising secretary of INFOCOM and Tapan Kanti Sarkar, president of CTO Forum, were also present on the occasion.

Beximco unveils RealVU logo

Flaunting the tagline ‘Life is really colorful now’, Beximco Communications Limited yesterday launched the logo of ‘RealVU’,  the brand that will provide Direct-to-Home (DTH) television services.
The first DTH service of the country will have an operational launch somewhere between mid-April and May this year, officials said, aiming to time it with the start of the Bengali New Year on April 14.

In December 2013, the government awarded licences to Beximco Communications Limited to launch DTH service in Bangladesh. It also received the necessary approval from Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) in this regard. DTH, by definition, is reception of satellite programs through a personal  dish installed in an individual home. Unlike traditional cable, in DTH, TV channels are transmitted from the satellite to a small dish antenna mounted on the window or rooftop of the subscriber’s home. The broadcaster, thus, directly connects to the user. There are no middlemen, like the local cable operators, in the picture. It also improves the image and sound quality, providing a true digital television viewing experience. “It will drastically change the viewing experience of the Bangladeshi TV audience,” said Dmitry Lapitskiy, CEO of Beximco Communications Ltd, at the press meet, adding, “The picture quality that will be provided by RealVU will be of much better quality than the analogue cable TV.”
Lapitskiy, a Russian national, said RealVU would be initially launched in metropolitan areas. “It will be gradually launched in all districts; all corners of the country will be brought under this new digital TV viewing opportunity,” he claimed.
To avail the DTH service, customers will initially need to have a set-top box and dish-antenna. After the installation and first payment, they will be able to enjoy the RealVU service.
The approximate monthly bill of the service will amount to Tk.300, where subscribers will get access to over 100 channels with more than 26 Bengali channels and many international majors, including five HD channels.
Lapitskiy informed that RealVU will have 24/7 customer support service. “The RealVU customers will also have various options to pay the monthly bill,” he added. Beximco Communications Limited has finalized the list of distributors to enable customers to get the service easily from their nearest location.
Replying a query on the service costing more in future, Lapitskiy assured that they would always keep the price affordable. “We want to provide the best service in the most cost-effective manner,” he said.
On whether DTH will have a negative impact on the country’s cable industry, he said it was difficult to gauge the impact at this stage. “DTH is the latest technology and it offers the best TV viewing experience. We will give a new service to Bangladesh’s people and they will decide whether to accept that or not,” he said.
Prakash Das, Director, Beximco Communication Ltd, also spoke on the occasion.
RealVU is a joint venture between BEXIMCO and GS Group. The BEXIMCO Group is the largest private sector group in Bangladesh, while the GS Group is a Russian investment and industry multispectral holding company, operating in the telecommunication and other innovation markets and actively developing its own technologies.
