Already six million people avail citizen services online through 7,000 digital centres across the country, says the state minister

By 2025, all public and private services in the country will be available online, says State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak.

“The government is working to make all citizen services available online in four years, which will create 30 lakh IT and ITES jobs," he said while addressing a virtual program on Friday night on the occasion of the launch of the Bangladesh chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA).

Already six million people are availing citizen services online through 7,000 digital centres across the country, he said.

"The government has adopted a strategy of ‘Mission 5 billion dollars’ to earn $5 billion and achieve growth by 2025. Already $1 million has been achieved," said Palak.

A draft strategy of the Made-in-Bangladesh-ICT industry has been prepared for producing digital devices in the country, he said.

Palak said the payment system has been digitised, which has led to the rapid growth of mobile financial services and e-commerce.

In April 2021, some Tk63,479 crore were transacted through mobile phone apps. The growth of e-commerce is about 166%.

Already 8,000 Sheikh Russel digital labs have been set up at educational institutions to make the citizens ready for the fourth industrial revolution.

Sheikh Kamal IT Training and Incubation Centre has been established in 64 districts. Besides, Sheikh Hasina Institute of Frontier Technology and some 39 high-tech parks are being built in Bangladesh.
