The Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni, MP was present as the chief guest on the occasion.
Sharing his views, the Education Minister said, “We appreciate the entrepreneurial training through this master class. The Ministry of Education will work for the official recognition of such an event. I also thank the IT department for being by the side of women so much. ‘
Calling on the Minister of Education to include e-commerce in the textbooks, Palak said, “If we can include the basic knowledge of e-commerce in textbooks or textbooks for 4 and a half crore students, then we can include them in the Women and e-commerce guide or curriculum for every student. That part of the Commerce Digital Lifestyle, however, will be delivered to everyone.”
In the last 12 months, it has been possible to provide various emergency services through e-commerce during the Corona period, as a result of which people have got the benefits of e-commerce at home. E-commerce has surpassed the growth of the last 12 years in 12 months, Palak said.
