Thousands of sellers across the country are connected to this platform.

The platform is expected to contribute to the national economic growth.
Zunaid Ahmed Palak said that 90 percent of the services of the government can be provided through digital platforms, creating 20 lakhs jobs in the hardware and software sector. Bangladesh have turned into producing and exporting country from an importing country where Walton is playing a groundbreaking role. Our aim is to generate 5 billion dollars as export revenue from the ICT sector by 2025. It is expected that one-fifth of that revenue will come from Walton itself.
He also said that the government is not doing business but has created a business friendly environment for the entrepreneurs and we have Walton as example, contributing to Bangladesh’s digital economy.

They have come up with such a timely initiative in the e-commerce sector. I am sure that the consumers will get their desired service from this sector as well.
