Intelligence is the power to conquer the world. Bangladesh has a new generation of talent and inherited courage. Fifty-one years ago, we took away the weapons of the Pakistanis and fought without weapons - capitalizing on the courage under the leadership of Bangabandhu, we fought and brought freedom.

Appreciating the role of Banglalink, the minister said that various initiatives of Banglalink are inspiring the youth to be innovative with the aim of empowering the youth. The minister expressed optimism that they will be able to prepare themselves to face the challenges of digital Bangladesh by utilizing the learning and experience gained from this program.
