Dhaka – As per UN e-government Survey 2016, conducted by United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Bangladesh has made very good progress. This year Bangladesh has been ranked 124. In 2014, and 2012 Bangladesh was ranked 148 and 150 respectively.‘The E-Government Development Index (EGDI) is a weighted average of normalised scores on the three most important dimensions of e-government, namely: scope and quality of online services (Online Service Index, OSI), status of the development of telecommunication infrastructure (Telecommunication Infrastructure Index, TII) and inherent human capital (Human Capital Index, HCI)’.
The report titled ‘United Nations E-Government Survey 2016, E-Government in Support of Sustainable Development’ stated that
“Bangladesh has made the largest gains with a global ranking of 124th in the 2016 Survey, partly due to the fact that the role of e-government is recognised at the highest level of its administration, with the Prime Minister of Bangladesh highlighting its “state of the art” digital technology. People in Bangladesh are today receiving more than 200 services from 4,582 digitalized Union Services and Information Centres”, it was reliably learnt from the access to information (a2i) programme, Prime Minister’s Office, in Dhaka.
