Highlighting the SoftExpo, Russell T Ahmed said the exposition in the IT sector being held is unprecedented in the country’s history as such large-scale fair was never held in the country in the past.

The private sector can play a significant role in implementing the vision of Smart Bangladesh, Ahmed said, adding that continued efforts of local IT companies contributed to the realisation of the dream of Digital Bangladesh.
