The protagonist of this episode is Md. Mominur Rahman, and his Chinese name is Mao Min. He is founder and CEO of LanguageBD, the first online teaching language platform in Bangladesh. Mao Min is also a student in Tsinghua University studying in software engineering, focusing on e-commerce.

Talking about his entrepreneurial experience, Mao Min said, after the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013, Mao Min had realized that the initiative could bring opportunities of development to Bangladesh. At that time, there were not many people that could speak Chinese or many institutions that could provide Chinese language classes. So, Mao Min decided to teach Chinese online. On December 12th, 2017, the online language teaching platform LanguageBD was officially launched.

"Bangladesh is located at the Bay of Bengal. Geographical advantage has made Bangladesh one of the key points of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road." According to Mao Min, nowadays, as Internet economy develops rapidly, the Belt and Road has brought opportunities to e-commerce development of Bangladesh.

Light industrial products have accounted for a large proportion among Bangladeshi export products, and a number of light industrial products are produced by medium and small enterprises. "Through the e-commerce platform, when small enterprises sell their products, they can save a lot of time and cost," said Mao Min. "They don't need to pay any middle agency service fee, and they even could make a popular brand for their product without having a physical shop." In the meantime, China has a large population with great consumption potential, and China has introduced preferential policies to countries along the Belt and Road. As a result, Mao Min believes that Bangladesh should tightly grasp opportunities brought by the Belt and Road so that medium and small enterprises can gain more opportunities of development.

As a young entrepreneur, Mao Min plans to open other language classes on LanguageBD to provide support for more Bangladeshi people and companies for their international communication and cooperation.
