Report: Mobile offers potential to drive progress in Bangladesh

The Bangladeshi government and the country’s mobile industry have the capacity to unlock digital transformation for millions of citizens by working more closely together, the GSMA revealed.

In a report entitled Bangladesh: Driving Mobile-enabled Digital Transformation, the association noted the mobile industry can play “a critical role” in the country, helping to realise the government’s Vision 2021 initiative and driving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The report, which was produced in partnership with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida); the UK Department for International Development; and backed by the UN development programme, highlighted ways for the mobile industry to provide applications and services which are vital to a digital society beyond basic connectivity.
