Proposal for a new policy will be placed before the government soon that will bring the education system under a digital framework, State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak said today.

It is necessary to establish a virtual education system and to promote innovation as traditional opportunities for jobs will be no more by 2030, Palak said at the workshop.

The workshop themed ‘Upgrading National Information and Communication Policy, 2015’ was attended by different stakeholders and government representatives.

One of the main targets of the digital policy will be to create a platform for virtual education as there is none in the country at the moment, Palak said.

To bring Bangladesh in a leadership position in digital world, the policy will be implemented with a short term goal by 2021 and long term goal by 2041, he added.
