Bangladesh-Estonia to work together on IT services

Bangladesh is keen to take Estonia’s experience in engineering, technology, digital public infrastructure, architecture and software solutions. In this regard, Bangladesh State Minister of Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak on Tuesday (Apr 2) held a bilateral meeting with Kristi Karelsohn, Head of the Asia-Pacific Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Northern European country. In the meeting, the Estonian delegation expressed interest in importing IT products from Bangladesh and exporting their manufactured smart technology products to Bangladesh, local media reported.

Other members of this delegation are Estonian Ambassador to India Marji Loup, Honorary Consul of Estonia in Bangladesh Syed Farhad Ahmed and DCM of Estonian Embassy in New Delhi Margus Solson.

After the meeting held at the Secretariat, the state minister said, Estonia has already gained global recognition for operating one of the world’s digital government systems, providing citizen services through cutting-edge technology and rich data-driven services. Inspired by Estonia’s success and capabilities, Bangladesh can use some of their strategies, technologies, digital public infrastructure, architecture and software solutions to build a prosperous smart Bangladesh in the future.

He also said that Bangladesh and Estonia will work together on e-governance, smart government service delivery, research, innovation, capacity building, human resource development and startup exchange and cyber security.
