BD ICT Minister Junaid Ahmed Palak MP
I was delighted to support Her Excellency, Bangladesh High Commissioner, Saida Muna Tasneem's dinner in honour for Bangladesh State Minister (ICT) Junaid Ahmed Palak MP. The prestigious event took place at the House of Lords. The dinner aimed to raise the profile of Bangladesh as the next ICT destination. 

The State Minister Junaid Palak MP shared his vision to create a digital Bangladesh and how Bangladesh will be a leading force in the ICT sector in the future during his visit to the UK.

In attendance were Conservative Peers, Lord Howell and Baroness Anne Jenkin, and MP’s, Paul Scully and Pauline Latham MP, business leads with cross party support and the Conservative Friends of Bangladesh. 

The State Minister was proud to share why Bangladesh is the next global ICT destination. With a target set in 2021 and time to build a Digital Bangladesh on intellectual economy, there are many reasons for investing in Bangladesh. With so much investments form the British Bangladeshi community who return to Bangladesh, it was a pleasure to see wider reaches to the UK to attract interest and raise its profile. 

There are 25 high tech parks planned with world class facilities, support infrastructure, skilled professionals, backed with young skilled population, and a country with the second fastest growing economy for this digital transformation. It was very positive to see the UK and Bangladesh interests come together to learn more on Digital Bangladesh.
