Since building a ‘Digital Economy’ is a must for implementing Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s Vision 2041, State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Monday said robotics should be given priority to attain the target.

“Our target for the days to come is building a smart nation through building a ‘Digital Economy’ and a knowledge based society,” he said.

The ICT state minister made the remarks while addressing the closing ceremony of ‘the 4th Bangladesh Robot Olympiad 2021’ virtually as the chief guest, said a press release.

Noting that Sheikh Hasina Institute for Frontier Technologies is being set up to grow up the next generation with skills to face the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Palak said, 300 schools of the future are being set up in the country to teach about robotics, which would be launched from 2022.

ICT Division Senior Secretary NM Zeaul Alam, Dhaka University (DU) Pro Vice Chancellor (academic) Professor Dr ASM Maksud Kamal and Professor of DU Computer Science and Engineering Department Dr Hafiz Mohammad Hasan Babu addressed the function, among others.  

Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) Executive Director Dr Md Abdul Mannan presided over the closing ceremony.
