Bangladesh has joined the global "50-in-5" campaign as one of the 11 first-mover countries committed to implementing digital public infrastructure (DPI) in a safe, inclusive and interoperable manner.

The campaign was launched virtually on Wednesday evening to accelerate digital ID, digital payments systems and data sharing among 50 countries within the next five years, reads an a2i press release issued on Thursday.

In partnership with the United Nations, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Co-Develop and others, the "50-in-5" campaign brought together both developed and developing nations to collaborate and share knowledge on best practices for DPI rollouts.

This groundbreaking campaign marks a transformative chapter in the development of DPI as a critical accelerator of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Bangladesh joined the campaign as a first-mover country alongside Estonia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Moldova, Norway, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Togo.

The campaign brought countries together to radically shorten DPI implementation journeys by sharing learning, best practices and purpose-built technologies, including digital public goods (DPGs), which can ultimately reduce costs and maximize impact.

The goal of the campaign is to have designed, implemented and scaled at least one DPI component in a secure, inclusive and interoperable manner within five years, by the end of 2028.

The campaign underscores participant countries' unified commitment to working together towards this goal.

For Bangladesh, being a first-mover country in the "50-in-5" initiative represents an embrace of digital cooperation.

The process involves learning from others while sharing Bangladesh's experiences, thereby contributing to the realization of the country's digital public infrastructure ambitions and extending support to other nations.

Through this campaign, Bangladesh intends to foster more innovative and inclusive economies, making frameworks, knowledge and technologies available for the benefit of all countries.

It also wants to become a global participant in the advancement of digital public infrastructure, actively contributing to the realization of a world without a digital divide.
