Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina received two ITU Telecom World 2019 awards in recognition of Bangladesh’s success in telecommunication sector and digitisation yesterday. 

The awards are, “The ITU Telecom World Awards 2019 Certificate of Appreciation” and “The ITU Telecom World Awards 2019 Recognition of Excellence”, reports BSS.

Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar along with the ministry’s Secretary Ashoke Kumar Biswas handed over the awards to the prime minister at the outset of  cabinet’s meeting held at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

The two awards were handed over to Bangladesh at the ITU Telecom World 2019 held in the Hungarian capital of Budapest on September 9-12.

The ITU Telecom World Awards 2019 Certificate of Appreciation was given to Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) for the country’s active participation in the ITU Telecom World 2019 and showcasing the progress of Digital Bangladesh by setting up a Bangladesh pavilion at the event.

Central Biometric Verification Monitoring Platform (CBVMP), the successful initiative to build Digital Bangladesh, received “The ITU Telecom World Awards 2019 Recognition of Excellence” as the best innovation in the ITU Telecom World 2019.

Thanks to use of the CBVMP platform, it is possible to properly verify the registration of every SIM card, NID card, personal information and photograph. As a result, committing crimes in these fields has declined to a great extent.

The prime minister in the cabinet’s meeting also unveiled the cover of “Standing Orders on Disaster (SOD)-2019.”

The premier at the cabinet meeting yesterday also unwrapped the cover of a book titled “Chhotoder Bangabandhu” authored by State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Md Zakir Hossain.
