Ladies and gentlemen,
Assalamu Alaikum and a very Good Evening.
I feel deeply honoured to receive this award.
I thank our good friend, the ITU Secretary General and other organisers for this important recognition.
I dedicate this award to all our young people.
It is a significantrecognition as we are working to build a “Digital Bangladesh”.
For us, this is not just a dream, but very much a reality. We are promoting ICT access to every citizen so that no one is left behind.
Let us join our hands to remove all road-blocks to a knowledge-based sustainable future.
I thank you all.

May Bangladesh Live Forever.
