‘Bangladesh advancing fast’

Bangladesh has become a digital country and has been advancing fast toward a middle income nation and subsequently, a developed country, under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, reports BSS.

“With becoming a digital country, Bangladesh has achieved laudable success in every sector all over the country,” said Director General (Admin) and Project Director of Access to Information (A2I) Programme of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Kabir Bin Anwar.

He made the observations at a discussion after inaugurating a 3-day Digital Innovation Fair-2018 by releasing balloons on Thakurgaon Zila School ground here on Sunday afternoon as the chief guest.

The district administration with assistance of the A2I Programme has been arranging the fair for bridging the people with ICT, rights to information and getting government services in digital methods to further speed up the ongoing digitisation activities.

The district administrations, government departments, NGOs and private organisations, union digital centres, financial and educational institutions and entrepreneurs have set up 70 stalls on the fair ground displaying their various innovations.

With Deputy Commissioner Abdul Awal in the chair, People’s Perspective Expert of the A2I Programme at the PMO Naimuzzaman Mukta, Additional Police Super Dewan Lalon Ahmed, Zila parisahd Chairman Muhammad Sadek Koraeshi, Civil Surgeon Dr Abu Musa Md Khairul Kabir, addressed the occasion, among others.

The speakers said the government launched the A2I Programme for reaching all services to the people at their doorsteps quickly in a hassle-free manner through the digitised Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) at the lowest costs.

They said the union digital centres, e-service centres and web-portals set up at districts, upazilas, pourashavas and city corporations are providing e-services to the people while the directorates and ministries are also providing similar automated services.

The chief guest hoped the fair would help make a bridge between the common people and ICT for building a middle income nation and subsequently, a developed Bangladesh equal for all citizens.
