Dig­i­tize ‘n De­liver

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

To achieve its cov­eted Dig­i­tal Bangladesh Vi­sion 2021, the Gov­ern­ment of Bangladesh has signed a part­ner­ship with the ‘Bet­ter Than Cash Al­liance’ to ac­cel­er­ate rapid tran­si­tion from con­ven­tional to dig­i­tal pay­ments. Sup­port­ing the gov­ern­ment’s vi­sion to ad­vance na­tional fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion, the his­tor­i­cal move aims to de­liver the most ef­fec­tive, ef­fi­cient and in­stant ac­cess to fi­nan­cial ser­vices equally for all cit­i­zens in Bangladesh. Un­der the Dig­i­tal Bangladesh Vi­sion 2021, the gov­ern­ment is work­ing to dig­i­tize all kinds of so­cial se­cu­rity pay­ments. This also in­cludes the fees/bills paid by Bangladeshis to the Gov­ern­ment for var­i­ous ser­vices. The move also aims to dig­i­tize all forms of in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic re­mit­tances, in­clud­ing fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions for ecom­merce, thus mak­ing Bangladesh the lead­ing South Asian coun­try to achieve this land­mark.
