Women entrepreneurs need to be skilled in digitalisation in order to avail the advantages of modern technology so that they can give a boost to their businesses, according to Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury, speaker of Bangladesh Parliament.
"We have seen many potentials in e-commerce businesses during the pandemic so technology can help women," she said.
E-commerce has shown its importance from a gender perspective because it is a strong platform for empowerment, she said.
"Our women are suffering from some problems even in normal times such as low access to finance, training, markets and mobility," Chaudhury added.
Other major challenges faced by women entrepreneurs are inadequate access to credit facilities and a lack of accounting and managerial knowledge, she said.
