DHAKA Minister for Science and Technology

Architect Yeafesh Osman has stressed equal participation from men and women for success of young generation, saying it would be meaningful if we can achieve it jointly.

As people of all sections have been included in the idea of Digital

Bangladesh and in performing all the tasks under it, that is why we are

witnessing rapid implementation of this vision, he said.

The minister said these while addressing national conference on Skills

and Future of Work at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC)

Begum Monnujan Sufian, State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak and

former chief coordinator for SDG affairs of Prime Minister's Office and

others.

We should not downplay any profession. We have to ensure employment

alongside timely education in all the sectors. We would provide all kinds of

support including getting loans for the entrepreneurs, Begum Monnujan Sufian

said.

State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak in his speech

emphasized on e-learning in education, saying, We need to introduce e-

learning by coming out of the mold of traditional methods of education.

Generation Unlimited in Bangladesh president Md Abul Kalam Azad stressed

ensuring vocational course for all the students by 2021.
