Information Technology for Eliminating Poverty and Creating New Jobs:
In today's globalization, the tide of ICT outsourcing is flowing all over the world. To continue the new trend of ICT, a new economy called "Knowledge Economy" has been created.

With the development of this new type of economy, developed countries need a large amount of data processing work. Developing countries are taking advantage of this opportunity to earn a huge amount of foreign exchange. As a result, employment is being created for the poor and unemployed people of the country. Due to geographical reasons, Bangladesh is in a time zone opposite Europe or america. As a result, Bangladesh can be an ideal country for outsourcing. The World Society on Geneva Declaration on Information Society declared the use of ICT as a tool to reduce poverty.

Pros and cons of modern information technology:
The triumph of science has its own ups and downs. The use of modern information technology has added a different dimension to the journey of human life.

This new practice of science has made it easier to cross our distance. At present, the information is moving from one end of the Earth to the other end. And all this is possible with the help of modern information technology.

Apart from all these good aspects of technology, there are also some bad aspects. Many important confidential information is being stolen due to the opportunity for free exchange of information. Due to the free-use of online, false news can confuse many people at this time. In addition, young boys and girls are also victims of online violence due to lack of restrictions. Many people are dying due to hacking or online theft. In addition, blackmail and online threats have also created a new kind of terrorism. Despite many bad aspects, we should take good people. And only then will it be possible for us to achieve technical excellence.


Our beloved homeland Bangladesh is a country that stands at the bright gate of possibilities. There is no option to build a country dependent on modern it to accelerate the development of this country. And, therefore, we need to rely more on information technology and take the country forward by enriching this sector.
