Zeaul Alam exchanged experiences on different achievements of ICT division and blockchain technology.
He said, blockchain is an important technology that needs to be used properly. There is considerable interest among our youth on Frontier technology. The ICT division is working as a ‘front line soldier’ using Frontier technology. But, in this case, we need trained manpower the most.
He also expressed the view that blockchain technology would further improve the overall management of the country as well as ensure transparency.
In his speech as a special guest Dr. Md. Sazzad Hossain said, we are now in a difficult and unexplainable time due to COVID 19 pandemic. We need to ensure transparency and accountability during this epidemic. This blockchain technology can ensure transparency.
“So it needs to be used properly. There is no alternative to education and research. At this time, everyone should keep their morale strong. We all need to pay special attention to science and technology, research, and ICT skills. Together we must take the country towards a possibility”, added Sazzad.
Thanking all those who helped make the event a success, Parthapratim Deb is eager to continue trying to give everyone an idea about the prevalence of Frontier technology in the world and also said that we want to create an innovative environment through which it will be possible to create an entrepreneurial culture.
