Bangladesh wins WITSA global ICT award

Today Bangladesh was awarded with the prestigious ‘Global ICT Excellence Award’ in the category of ‘Public Sector Excellence’ for outstanding contribution in social development of the nation using IT. ICT division State minister Mr. Zunaid Ahmed Palak received the award on behalf of Bangladesh Government at World Congress on IT-WCIT in Mexico.

After receiving the award, in reaction, State Minister said that with the active guidance of the PM we were able to make a huge leap toward a true digital Bangladesh. Mr. Palak also added that the award was in fact the achievement of 16 million people of Bangladesh as they all cooperated to make this happen.

The expert committee of World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), comprising of 80 nations, nominated Bangladesh in this particular category. The Awards program aims at identifying the most outstanding users of information and communications technology. Held every two years, the WCIT is covered by hundreds of local and international media representatives as well as approximately 2,000 high ranking delegates from around the world. WITSA represents IT industry associations in over 80 countries or economies.
