Prime Minister’s ICT Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy today hoped the country’s youths would drive the country forward overcoming the crisis that gripped the world through the ongoing war situation as the people are capable of solving their own problems.
He was addressing the sixth installment of the Joy Bangla Youth Award (JBYA) giving ceremony at Sheikh Hasina National Institute of Youth Development on the city’s outskirts Savar.

“You know that the world is undergoing a crisis. A war is going on, and so are problems. We dealt with the Covid-19 crisis just two years ago. Coming hot on its heels are a war, terrorism, and a price hike. Financial pressure is building up,” Joy said.

Addressing the fear among many people about how Bangladesh country would go forward amid all these problems, he said, “You (youths) are the examples of solving problems. There is no end to problems. We, Awami League, have been in power for 14 straight years. How many problems did we face?”

“Power outage was the first one. How would we solve the load shedding problem? Then comes the economy. How will so many people be fed? How will this economy be advanced? We proved that all these problems could be solved”, he said.

Reflecting on the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, he said, “Then came Covid. Everyone was scared of it. Panic gripped everyone. Apprehension settled in the whole world. But, what did we see? In Bangladesh, we managed it in our own way and with our own plans. We have dealt with it in a smarter way than most countries in the world or even the richest countries did.”

“It fills my heart with joy seeing that you (youths) are making a robotic hub. It is brilliant. You are sending representatives to the UN to place demands on climate change. That is outstanding,” he added.

Praising everyone for working in unison, he said, “You are amazing! our country is an outstanding country. We ourselves fought and shed blood to liberate our country. We earned our capability to feed these 16 crore people. Within 10 to 15 years, we have enabled the transition of this country of 16 crore people from the lower to middle-income status.”

“These youths, these winners of Young Bangla – you are the future! You, youths, are the future of Bangladesh. You will drive the country forward. I believe that you will transform middle-income Bangladesh into a high-income one. We will have seen that in our lifetime.”

“We will achieve it with our hard work. We will solve our own problems with our merit. If we have confidence and patriotism within ourselves, it is possible to do everything for our country and the people of this country,” he added.
