Prime Minister's ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy yesterday said ICT education will be introduced from the primary level in near future.
“Computer training is now being given from class VI.” Hopefully the ICT education would be introduced from the primary level in next few years aimed at building skilled manpower, he said.
Joy spoke while presenting the keynote paper at a ministerial conference on the second day of Digital World 2017, at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital.
He said the text of ICT education for the primary level would be made easier.
He said Bangladesh does not want to remain as a cheap labour exporting country rather it wants to be a technology exporting nation.
"It is high time for us to talk about fourth industrial revolution as the rapidly changing technology has been bringing radical changes to every part of human life resulting quick economic growth and industrialisation."
He said the government along with the private sector has been working for the development of the ICT sector.
The number of internet and social media users has also increased a lot, Joy, also the son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said.
