South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Lee Jang-Keun said this on Tuesday during his meeting with State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak in the capital.
Palak sought South Korean cooperation to build a Digital Bangladesh and apply its model to make progress in the post-Covid-19 world using technology, read a press release.
The state minister said the e-Government Master Plan for Digital Bangladesh has already been formulated with South Korean support. "With this, Bangladesh has made good progress in e-government."
