Abstract [en]

Turning Bangladesh, one of the world’s least developed countries, into a digitally developed nation by 2021 was one of the main electoral pledges of the present government. This vision, widely known as ‘Digital Bangladesh’, has contributed to a decisive victory for the alliance of ruling parties by securing absolute majority in the parliament. This paper investigates how this vision has been stewarded by measuring the level of commitment of the present government. In order to do so, a qualitative formative evaluation research approach has been followed, using Peña-López’s digital component access model, the National ICT Policy-2009 (NIP) and the national budgets of Bangladesh for the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 fiscal years. The main finding is that the Government’s commitment for initiating widespread digital development is so far not comprehensive and not consistent with the approved policies. There is also evidence of poor progress toward materializing a digital Bangladesh.
