Dhaka — Bangladesh’s Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar has said that the ‘Digital Bangladesh’ program has resulted in a dramatic change in the country’s banking transactions.
He believed that digital banking has reached the doorsteps of the grassroots people. In this continuity, Bangladesh is gradually moving towards a cashless society. But then again the more digital we become, the greater the security threat, he perceived.
Therefore, the minister urged the people to work hard to create awareness among the consumers about digital security. While speaking as the chief guest at the launch of Agrani Bank’s Agrani e-account mobile apps on Sunday, he noted these.
Leading Bank Board Member Mofiz Uddin Ahmed, Kashem Humayun, Dr. Md. Faraz Ali, KMN Fazlul Haque Lablu, and Managing Director and CEO of the Bank Mohammad Shams-ul-Islam spoke.
The Minister of Posts and Telecommunications said: “We are on the verge of the Third Industrial Revolution or the Internet-based Industrial Revolution. The road ahead is much bigger. Technology will bring the most changes in the banking sector.”
In the last 12 years, under the wise leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, digital infrastructure has been built in Bangladesh. Business-industry offices, meetings, symposiums, workshops are also going on online in Corona, he further remarked.
