Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said that youths are the main strength in developing the nation and they are showing the nation the road to success.
She made the remarks while addressing a function organised by CodersTrust Bangladesh at BIAM Auditorium in Eskaton on Thursday evening.
The minister said that besides general education, any kind of technology-based knowledge transforms a person into skilled manpower. Hence, everyone has to have the mentality of getting such education and training.
Dr Dipu Moni said, "We are creating a lot more entrepreneurs with what CodersTrust is doing. They will not look for jobs for anyone else, but they will be able to create many more employment opportunities.”
Appreciating the initiative of CodersTrust, the minister said that such initiatives are truly playing an important role in the process of building a digital Bangladesh in advancing women in the technology sector. When there is an investment made in a woman, her benefits go to everyone in the family, hence, CodersTrust's investment is a smart investment.
CodersTrust Bangladesh organised the programme to celebrate their achievements, award certificates and reward the best performers.
Founder of CodersTrust Bangladesh and a Bangladeshi American IT entrepreneur Aziz Ahmed presided over the event while Parliament Members Raushan Ara Mannan and Shirin Ahmed, Bangladesh Red Crescent Society Chairman Major General ATM Abdul Wahab, National Skills Development Authority (NSDA) Chairman Dulal Krishna Saha, former NSDA chairman and CodersTrust Adviser Farooq Hossain were present as special guests.
