Zunaid: Digital literacy must for progressive, tolerant Bangladesh
State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak has said digital literacy among young people is crucial to make Bangladesh progressive and tolerant. He made the above comment during a follow-up event of "Digital Khichuri Challenge" organized by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Thursday, said a press release on Friday. Partnering with Facebook and Bangladesh ICT Division, UNDP initiated "Digital Khichuri Challenge" in 2016 in order to glean ideas from youths with a view to building a more peaceful and tolerant society and promoting cultural diversity. Zunaid assured the support from his ministry to continue their work. "Youths are the architects of Digital Bangladesh and the current government is always interested to invest in youth through initiatives, like startups," said Zunaid. "Platform, like Digital Khichuri, will help Bangladesh achieve Sustainable Development Goal 16," said Deputy Country Director, UNDP Bangladesh Kyoko Yokosuka.
