Information and Broadcasting Secretary Khaja Miah on Monday underscored the need for developing all programmes and systems related to 'Digital Bangladesh' in Bangla in order to provide digital services to the general people in a simpler way, reports BSS.

"When we visited different countries like China, Japan and Saudi Arabia, we observed that they deliver their all services in their own languages. So, I think all programmes regarding 'Digital Bangladesh' should be made in Bangla so that the general people can get the services easily," he said.

The information secretary made the remarks while addressing the inaugural session of a virtual workshop titled "Role of Local Journalists in Implementing Digital Bangladesh" as the chief guest.

National news agency Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS) and aspire to innovate (a2i) of the Cabinet Division and the ICT Division with support from the UNDP, jointly organized the daylong workshop, the fourth and the last of its kind for local journalists of BSS in two divisions.

BSS Managing Director and Chief Editor Abul Kalam Azad chaired the opening session of the workshop while a2i Joint Project Director Salina Pervez addressed it as the key speaker.
