Tarana to meet FB officials in Singapore
State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Tarana Halim Wednesday said she would hold talks with Facebook officials in Singapore next week as part of initiatives to reach a deal with the social networking site for an admin panel in Bangladesh.
“We are trying to reach a deal with Facebook to set an admin panel of the social networking site in Bangladesh. I want to achieve the two goals in long term,” she told newsmen at her office at a briefing marking the completion of two years of her induction in the council of ministers.
Tarana said she planned to leave Dhaka on January 12 on a two-week visit which also would take her to Malaysia as she is set to meet her counterparts and Google and Microsoft officials in both the countries.
The state minister said her meeting with Facebook officials would review several issues and “I will also raise how many complaints related to social norms of the Bangladesh were filed to Facebook authority”, according to a news agency.
