eASiA 2011: Message – Yeafesh Osman, State Minister, Ministry of Science and Information and Communication Technology, Government of Bangladesh

  • Minister’s Message

    It is a great pleasure to welcome the World on the eve of the inauguration of e-Asia 2011 Bangladesh with the slogan Realizing Digital Nation.

    This event commemorates the 40th Independence Anniversary of Bangladesh celebrating the achievements Vision 2021: Digital Bangladesh. Bangladesh has made significant gains to realize the dreams of the Father of the Nation under the able leadership of his daughter the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

    Information and Communication Technology is being used to leverage economic growth to achieveVision 2021: Digital Bangladesh. We have taken initiatives such as formulating ICT Policy 2009 with action items, implementation of the ICT Act 2006 (amended 2009), inacting the Right to Information Act, establishing the independent Information Commission etc. We have mainstreamed ICT as a pro-poor tool so that we can empower citizens to eradicate poverty, establishing good governance by delivering better citizens services through promoting quality education, healthcare and law enforcement for all etc. in general and Millennium Development Goal (MDG) in particular.

    I strongly believe that this conference will provide excellent opportunity for showcasing projects, programs, initiatives of government and private sector agencies/corporations of the Asian countries to share the knowledge and experiences towards leveraging ICT for economic growth. I also believe that this event would create a great platform to promote greater corporation among the Asian countries and the rest of the World through networking of the individuals and practitioners engaged in the development area.

    I cordially invite and welcome all to attend eAsia 2011.

    Architect Yeafesh Osman
