In the next 5 years, Bangladesh will be unthinkable in the continuation of change.

Shamsul Arefin, Secretary of Post and Telecommunications Division Ashok Kumar Biswas, A2U Director Md Mostafizur Rahman and Chief Innovation Officer of Postal, Telecommunication Department Mr. Azizul Islam delivered the speech.

The telecommunications minister said, the industry is constantly changing. The first three industrial revolution was led by innovation in Japan in America and Europe and Asia. Now they are not in that leadership position. Because of their lack of young people. Our young people are very talented. Young people will have to use the innovation. The progress made by Bangladesh in the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina during the last ten years is surprising. The government has been passing this hundred years in this regard.
