Bangladesh's GDP grew 7.2% at FY 2018 – 19 and became 2nd fastest growing economy. The Social & Economic development of Bangladesh sees huge progress in recent years. The contribution of Cities to GDP in Bangladesh is 60% and Dhaka city is contributing 30% alone. There is no alternate to keep the cities active and productive for sake of economy. Some of those cities are struggling to survive but on the other hand some of the cities transformed to SMART CITIES. These Smart Cities need proper urban planning, sustainable development, environment, energy grid, economic development, technologies, social participation etc.
These cities are often linking together technological informational transformations with economic, political and socio-cultural change and integration and adaption. Smart City is a broad concept including many aspects of urban life, such as urban planning, sustainable development, environment, energy grid, economic development, technologies, social participation, and so on; therefore, also the word smart assumes a large range of meanings, linked with its different field of application.
This exhibition will also focus on the untapped sectors that important for Bangladesh to Sustain the Economic & Social development. Besides, the participants will be able to identify business contacts with prospect of entering into subsequent business negotiations, So it’s time to roll up our sleeves and use above discussed opportunities by Bangladesh Smart City Expo & Conference 2020.
