Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son and ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy has said people do not need to look to the government for jobs, as there are plenty available in the ICT sector.
Joy was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the third iteration of the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) conference – an event designed to encourage the younger generations to work in the ICT sector – at the Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel on Sunday.
He also said: “Asian and African countries require a lot of assistance in this regard, and thus have many openings. Because of the government’s initiatives, young men and women from small towns across Bangladesh are earning thousands of dollars. This was made possible by the consistent supply of electricity and high-speed internet provided by the government.”
Speaking about the quota reform movement, he said: “The Awami League government has listened to the youth and reformed the quota system.”
Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications, and Information Technology organized the event in association with Bangladesh Association of Call Centre and Outsourcing (BACCO).
The event was presided by Posts, Telecommunications, and Information Technology Minister Mustafa Jabbar, and attended by BACCO President Wahid Sharif, ICT Ministry parliamentary standing committee President Imran Ahmad, ICT Secretary Shyam Sunder Sikder, and other information and communication technology experts.
