Digital Bangladesh Paragraph

Turning Bangladesh into a resourceful ICT-based country, Our present government has agreed on an agenda-‘ The vision 2021.’ This vision is commonly known as ‘Digital Bangladesh.” Digital Bangladesh’ program was launched in 2009, which was also one of the main electoral pledges of the present government. This agenda aims at utilizing information and communication technology to transform Bangladesh into a middle-income country by 2021 and developed by 2041. In line with this, the National ICT policy- 2009 was developed. This issue has already achieved an overwhelming consensus from the mass. The government and the people are working hand-in-hand to materialize this dream of “Digital Bangladesh”. Bangladesh Government has implemented several projects in the way to digitizing Bangladesh, and some big projects are in progress. With the digitization process, now, we are on the threshold of a new age where peace, prosperity, and dignity will be at the height. Our government is determined to provide more and more online services available for the people. The digitalization process in the education sector has already come a long way: online registration for admission to academic institutions, an online publication of results of examinations. We are also experiencing a noteworthy change in the financial growth of our country due to the online banking system. Some more available digital services are 1. SMS services for lodging complaints to the police station, 2.online bill payment for utility services, 3. e-passport 4. online submission of tax returns 5. online tendering, etc. The government sets up nearly five thousand union information service centers to make online services available for rural people. Last but not the least, our government is providing training services to unemployed youth in three key ICT areas: graphic design, web design and development, and digital marketing. It has opened up a new area for youth employment. To continue the journey ahead for digital Bangladesh, our government also emphasizes the transparency of its administrative activities. We have already progressed to some extent, and to continue its march, the government has planned to set up 12 IT parks at the district headquarters of Gopalganj, Mymensingh, Jamalpur, Rangpur and Barisal, Keraniganj in Dhaka, Comilla Sadar Chittagong port, Ramu in Cox’Bazar; Singara in Nature, Companiganj in Sylhet, and KUET campus in Khulna. No one can deny the fact that since the declaration of the ‘Digital Bangladesh” program, our country has seen great development and transformation in the area of information and communication technology. But, there are still some barriers that may bar our achievement. We must utilize our human resources, develop connectivity and encouragement in the industrial sector, and ensure e-governance to make ‘Our vision 2021’ come true, and emerge as a digital Bangladesh.
