Skilled manpower is getting created in country’s ICT sector. We have got an opportunity to exploit this skilled manpower in world’s third largest ICT market Japan. Government has fixed a goal to creating employment opportunity for around 20 lakh youth in ICT sector by 2021.
We have to grab this opportunity to enter the Japanese market aiming to achieving this goal, as said ICT State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak in ‘Bangladesh-Japan ICT Engineers Training Program (B-Jet)’ organized by Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on March 4, 2018.
