The incumbent government’s commendable initiatives throughout the years has made revolutionary changes in every aspect of life. Digitalisation and e-governance have made life a whole lot easier. The concept of Digital Bangladesh aims to transform the country into a digitally developed nation through ICT integration in support of good governance, law enforcement, employment and growth.

Success in advancing the country' s e-government development has largely derived from strengthening the online connectivity of the public sector, online service delivery and investments in the digital literacy of public sector employees. 

Bangladesh has also invested in developing e-literacy and ICT skills among public sector employees and providing continuous learning opportunities through government-created open- learning-platform training in digital and professional skills. Now, companies and various different industries should think of alternative strategies of running the business and change the conventional mindset. Collaboration is needed between research institutes and universities and this should be done to further propel us towards innovation and reap all the benefits of modern technological miracles. Hence, our country’s working population will be more productive.
