Managing Director

Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited

 

 

The Bangabandhu Satellite-1 is a brilliant achievement of our nation. The launching of the Bangabandhu Satellite-1 will earn the country and the nation a magnificent glory.

The journey of Bangladesh towards satellite communication started with the inauguration of Betbunia Satellite ground station by the father of nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur  in the year of 1975. Honourable Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina has taken the journey to next level by launching Bangabandhu Satellite-1 which is surely one of the most important step towards building “Digital Bangladesh”. Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed, Honourable advisor to the Prime Minister has monitored the journey of fulfilling the dream of our own satellite.

Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited (BCSCL) is a state owned company. It has been established to perform post launching activities of Bangabandhu Satellite-1 , controlling the satellite from the ground stations, marketing and sales services etc. I am honored to be the first Managing Director of Bangladesh Communication Satellite Company Limited.

BCSCL is aimed to provide improved satellite services like DTH, VSAT, Video Distribution, Broadband, Communication Trunks etc.

Finally welcoming you all to the era of Satellite in Bangladesh.
