DHAKA (Rahnuma): As part of its efforts to make its Digital Bangladesh concept memorable, the Bangladeshi government on Wednesday celebrated “Digital Bangladesh Day” in the capital and elsewhere in the country.
As part of its activities to mark the country’s first-ever “Digital Bangladesh Day”, the Bangladeshi government’s Information and Communication Technology (IC) Division has chalked up a daylong program with main events at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC), formerly known as the Bangladesh-China Friendship Conference Center in the capital.
The program included giving citations to the Digital Bangladesh Award winners, discussions, a seminar, nationwide online essay and prize giving ceremony at BICC where Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith was present as the chief guest.
The Bangladesh cabinet last month approved the proposal for celebrating Dec. 12 as the “Digital Bangladesh Day” from this year.
Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has vowed to establish Digital Bangladesh by 2021, saying that the country has already achieved much progress in digitizing Bangladesh by ensuring an ICT based society where so many services are now available online.
