This ICT minister looks like he knows what he's doing, trying hard to develop the sector but If the govt doesn't turn its focus and chip in with policy support then it's all for nothing.

Hopefully the concerned authorities are taking this seriously and doing everything to possible to bring this potential venture to life.. pull out all the stops I say, tax holidays, plots in economic zones etc, you name it.

Absolutely. It was the SEZ's that transformed China from a poor backward to a first class nation we know today.
Inshallah if Bangladesh achieve even half of that, it would be nothing less than a blessing.

Semiconductors are now backbone of any industry. They have not only become a strategic assets as the country manufacturing them can weaponize its exports but are also epitome of technology.
Its industry is huge. Pakistan should focus on Fabless IC industry as it could very well be an ans to our economic woes.
If it goes through huge props to Bangladesh.

Taiwan is a semiconductor superpower and uses its prowess in this field to project power in ways one wouldn't expect...


The industry singlehandedly put Taiwan on the map and any invasion of Taiwan will tank the world atleast for a good while.

This may not be a money spinner for Bangladesh, but provides certain level technological security. Should any country block in key areas of development then Bangladesh will less be effected.

Having a home grown semi conductor industry gives to other high and mid tech industries. This will also give our military arms production capabilities a massive boost.
