Invest in intellectual excellence
I would like to thank Dr. A. A. Azad for writing on the above issue which needs urgent government attention. Bangladesh is fully committed to implementing the SDGs and the key element and measure for sustainable development is science and technology. Dr. Azad has emphasised on the development of human capital which undoubtedly is an important determinant of productivity and other economic outcomes. Investing in intellectual excellence is particularly crucial in today's knowledge-driven economy. I hope the policy makers will take into cognizance and implement what Dr. Azad has so thoughtfully outlined.
