Mominul Islam, Managing Director and CEO of IPDC Finance Limited said: To create a holistic supply chain financing eco-system in Bangladesh, business entities have to play a pivotal role by means of collaboration. A comprehensive digital supply chain financing solution like Orjon will be in place to address the issue.''

Naquib Khan, Director of corporate affairs of Nestle Bangladesh Limited said, "BSCMS will be the hub to collect, recognise and disseminate the best practices in supply chain management across the business entities.

Prof. Imran Ahmed said, 'Students of our country need to get the opportunity to learn more detailed knowledge on supply chain management. As companies have a good demand on this field many universities are starting courses on supply chain management.''

The speakers said supply chain management has a great opportunity to use in product or service distribution management. Collaborative approach on this matter can be beneficial for country.
