The two-day global conference on this subject, the first of its kind in Bangladesh, will be held at the capital’s Engineers’ Institution, Bangladesh (IEB). Titled ‘International Conference on 4IR for Emerging Future’, the event will revolve around the theme ‘On the road to building Smart Bangladesh and implementing Delta Plan’.
“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh is emerging as a role model on the global stage in implementing Digital Bangladesh and achieving economic and social growth,” said Bangladesh Awami League Science and Technology Secretary Engineer Md Abdus Sabur.
“The fourth industrial revolution has brought about remarkable changes to the daily lives of people.
