Jabbar came up with the observations while addressing a function organized for signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) and Leveraging ICT for Growth, Employment and Governance (LICT) project of Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) at its auditorium in capital’s ICT Tower.
