Prime Minister’s Information and Communication Technology Advisor Sajeeb Wazed Joy has called on all ICT sector officials to focus on innovation rather than imitation.

He made the call at an exchange meeting on the activities, achievements, and progress of the ICT department and its offices/agencies under the ICT Tower conference room in Agargaon on Tuesday.

In the meeting, Assistant Minister of State for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak handed over the ASOCIO ICT Education Award to Sajeeb Wazed Joy.

Giving different directions to take the country’s ICT sector further, Joy said, “We all need to be focused on innovation rather than imitation.” The award recognizes Bangladesh as a global role model in the ICT sector. He recommends adopting the world's best practices in the ICT sector.

In addition, under the direction of the Cabinet Department, the ICT department recently launched ‘Digital Opinion Monitoring System’, which monitors the views of government servicemen and enhances the quality of services based on the views of the subscribers. Appreciating the initiative, he said the initiative will play a significant role in improving the quality of services of the ICT department.

The meeting was attended by Senior Secretary of ICT Department N M Zeaul Alam and Director(Additional Secretary) of the Innovation Design and Entrepreneurship Academy (IDEA) project Syed Mojibul Haq, and other senior officials of the ICT department and its offices and agencies.
