Today is the birthday of the most influential young leader, icon of youth and key person for implementing digital Bangladesh vision, designed by Architect of Digital Bangladesh Mr. Sajeeb Wazed Joy. He followed his father's footsteps in politics and became a member of the Bangladesh Awami League. He has been involved in active politics of Bangladesh for the last 25 years.

Digital Bangladesh is a dream name. This dream was born amidst many sarcasm and criticism. That dream is now a reality. The concept of 'Digital Bangladesh' is a novel approach to keeping up with the rest of the world. People now have access to information and technology resources as a result of the implementation. Through online, we can obtain daily services delivered to our homes and we now access health and medical services, education, offices, courts, banks, political meetings, and conferences.

Mr. Zunaid Ahmed Palak is a key resource to implement of Digital Bangladesh vision. Under his leadership, ICT Ministry is working tirelessly to implement human resource development, internet connectivity, e-governance and IT industry promotion, the four pillars of Digital Bangladesh. Moreover, the freelancing and e-commerce sector gets priority to boost employment. All initiatives taken by the ICT Ministry got appreciation from every citizens of the country.

The contribution of Mr. Palak in strengthening the hand of Mr. Sajib Wazed Joy to make Bangladesh more technology dependent is undeniable. Under his leadership, ICT Ministry has taken many notable initiatives such as building nation-wide High-tech Parks, Sheikh Kamal IT and Incubation Center, Sheikh Russel Digital labs, 4 tier National Data Center, EDC and many more. Besides these, ICT ministry initiates many skill development projects like: Learning and Earning Development project (LEDP), She Power project, Mobile App and Game Development Project, EDGE etc. Through these projects, industry’s resource gap will be minimized and these skilled resources will generate foreign revenue it also reduces unemployment.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, ICT Ministry also initiated several emergency services including telemedicine services, emergency helpline services through 999, 333, 106, 109 and 1090.

Approximately 18,000 government offices across the country were connected to the internet via dedicated high-speed connections, and one of the world's largest web portals with 25,000 government websites was developed under his guidance. Bangladesh also received the ITU's Sustainable Development Award, the WSIS Plus 10 Award, and the WITSA Public Service Excellence Award.

For his magnificent leadership, he was nominated as “Young Global Leader” in 2016 by the World Economic Forum. In 2018, he was appeared on the list of “World’s 100 Most Influential People in Digital Government” published by Apolitical, a London-based international organization.

Mr. Zunaid Ahmed Palak is representing the youth in the politics of Bangladesh. He can understand the needs and dreams of the youth. On the other hand, since Palak is their contemporary, young men and women are inspired by his activities like workshops, seminars, speeches.

Information technology is the main driving force of Digital Bangladesh. People of Bangladesh dreamt for a better life with hope, dream and aspiration. Our honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working restlessly to fulfil the dream of Sonar Bangla of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

In his birthday, I wish may God bless him with good health and long life.
