With the vision of implementing Digital Bangladesh, under the able leadership of Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina the country has made tremendous progress so far. The turbocharged economy clocked up a growth speed of 7.65%, in fiscal year, 2017-18, largely facilitated by the growing digital connectivity within the country. Every aspect of life, such as, health, education, agriculture, entertainment, financial service and social development, improved with the increased touch of digital dividend. While the intangible elements of development are very positive, on the tangible side of things, per capita income rose up to USD 1,752 in 2017-18.

The country’s internet user number stands at 87.79 million (Mobile Internet Penetration: 49.7%); mobile phone subscriber number at 150.95 million (Mobile Penetration: 91.5%); the mobile banking user number at 61.9 million (Mobile Financial Service Penetration: 37.5%). Having launched 4G in February of this year, within less than six months, the country is already providing access to two out of every three citizens of the country by rolling out 4G network across 98% of the geographic location; this is digitalization at breakneck speed!

Many countries would have been basking in glory given this progress, but not Bangladesh; on the back of the strong digital wave sweeping across the country, the Government had successfully conducted the first ever trial run of 5G network recently. The nation also proudly hoisted its flag in the space with the successful launch of the communications satellite, Bangabandhu-1. ICT export fetched USD 800 million in 2017 employing approximately one million people in the sector. The Government continued to make public service related information easily available and accessible for citizens through the launched of a dedicated call center, 333. Bangladesh has also laid thousands of kilometers of fiber.

Bangladesh has gained noteworthy achievements and has become exemplary role model for rest of the world. Bangladesh is now placed on the solid platform of development from where we can dream to becoming a developed country. This indomitable advancement of Bangladesh in the domain of digitization specially was only possible due to the true vision of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and prudent leadership of the ICT Advisor to the Hon’ble Prime Minister Mr. Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed. A nation needs such visionary leaders who can install confidence and believe to the people that we can win against any odd.

Bangladesh Pavilion is organized by the Posts and Telecommunications Division and Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BTRC). Pavilion Partners include public and private entities representing both access and transmission network service providers and the communication satellite company.

The Republic of Botswana is a landlocked country in southern Africa. It shares its borders with Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Its surface area is approximately 582,000 sq km, slightly larger than France, or slightly smaller than the State of Texas of the United States of America. The country is sparsely populated, with up to 84% of the country covered by the Kalahari Desert, the vast arid to semi-arid landscape of much of Botswana and parts of Namibia and South Africa. Botswana’s population of 2 024 904 million people (in 2011) is concentrated in the eastern part of the country. Botswana is well known for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife areas on the African continent. 38% of its total land area is devoted to national parks, reserves and wildlife management areas.

Botswana liberalized its telecommunications sector in 1996 and introduced competition in 1998 by issuing the first two mobile licenses, followed by the first two commercial radio broadcasting licenses and internet service provider licenses. Since liberalization, the communications market in Botswana has evolved rapidly. Today, Botswana has 153% mobile penetration, one of the highest mobile penetration rates in Africa. Active mobile broadband internet usage sits at 75%. The country ranks No.5 in Sub-Saharan Africa according to ITU’s 2017 ICT Development Index. It is estimated that mobile telephony networks cover at least 95% of the population with varying network capabilities of 2G, 3G and 4G.

Brastorne Enterprises is a company that focuses on developing profitable ICT solutions that are relevant to the African market. Unlike most, we base our solutions on the local environment where there is bandwidth limitation and data is expensive such as SMS, USSD, and IVR. We pride ourselves in developing solutions that tackle the needs of youth, women and underserved populations, therefore tackling issues of financial inclusion (for the 45% of unbanked adults in Botswana), extreme poverty, diversification, youth empowerment, gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Our motto is Connecting The Unconnected. That is because we want to focus on solutions for social good that include the underserved communities that are at the base of the pyramid allowing them to access services that are otherwise only reserved for those people who can afford them. To those who have never been connected before, we provide access to advanced mobile applications such as trade, medical services, information and chat services all through using simple GSM mobile phones. We look to provide varied services to underserved communities including mobile money, mobile health (mhealth), insurance, social platforms and mobile agriculture (mAgri).

mAgri is a USSD mobile application that will help transform the way the farming community interacts. It allows all farmers (including the mostly underserved in remote villages) to market their products and services across the country. This powerful tool will allow service providers, and other users to create their own mobile stores, and allow farmers to search for and compare prices on hundreds of products and services. Using any phone (including simple feature phones commonly referred to as Sedilame in Botswana) and from anywhere, these farmers will be connected to updates (news and announcements) from the Ministry of Agriculture, merchants (Botswana Meat Commission, BAMB, Agri Shop etc) other farmers, buyers and sellers both nationally and Internationally. They will also be able to trade between other farmers and merchants and request short term loans from financial institutions, all from the comfort of their homes, creating a comprehensive eco-system within the agricultural community

To access mAgri, Farmers simply dial *118# on any mobile phone (including feature phones). The service is currently live on Be-Mobile and Orange.

With M-Xitique, in addition to participating in rotating savings groups, you can make one-person savings by setting a goal and setting the value needed to achieve the stated goal. By setting a goal, M-Xitique helps the customer with the best savings plan based on the time to be achieved and the customer’s earnings / revenues.

M-Xitique will allow users to pay and receive amounts from their savings groups, or single-person savings, using any bank account and / or e-banking associated with the M-Xitique service.

Why should Exhibition visitors come to your stand?

We believe in sustainable economic development.

Informal savings groups in Mozambique accumulate 1.8 billion meticais per year. The largest group is in the northern part of the country, especially in the province of Nampula, but it is in the south where women are massively represented, according to a national study released in Maputo. However, the following problems have been observed:

  • Conventional and unsafe ways to save and save money on revolving savings groups.
  • Lack of formal financial inclusion
  • Transactions in your groups of hand-to-hand xitiques and delays in payments sometimes due to mobility.

Our solution is to provide a service that facilitates the payment process, making it more convenient, practical, simple and safe to save and pay xitique instead of using other traditional methods, such as physical money, noting the transactions in the notebooks and use of homemade safes.

Senso’s mission is to connect people with life-saving sounds – the people and sounds that matter.

Our flagship product, Senso®, is a wrist armband that picks up sounds and communicates these sounds to the user through vibration and color coded LED lighting.

The device works as follows: when a wrist armband detects a sound that’s important to the user, the vibration on the wrist alerts the user to a sound that corresponds to a specific colour coded LED. If a user programs a sound made by a child to a pink color, the wrist armband will vibrate, then the LED color on the wrist will be pink. If the user programs the red colour to a forced entry sound, when there is a forced entry sound in the house, the wrist armband will detect it, the user will feel the vibration, the red LED color will light up, the user will know there is an intruder and can take precautionary steps to ensure safety.

Topic: Drone applications and threats

There has been a dramatic growth in drone capabilities and applications. Drones are inexpensive, powerful, easy to operate and can be flown by anyone.

Zinake


Kenya

Stand 3C03

 

Zinake is a platform that conveniently connects temporary workers to job opprtunities in their locality at the click of a button. It is a real time, cloud based web and mobile app. Zinake is a community innovation that ensures users (individuals or organizations) receive quality service from temporary workers without having to undergo the complex, tedious, expensive and time wasting recruitment and verification process.

When a user needs the services of a temporary worker, he creates a request on the Zinake platform. The workers who have enlisted to provide that service are notified of the available job opportunity in their locality. Interested workers respond to the request by bidding. The user then checks the bids submitted and selects the winner. The winning worker is then notified to go and work. Upon completion, money is transferred from the employer’s wallet to the worker’s wallet. The users then rate/review each other after every transaction.

Through colloboration with strategic partners, Zinake carries out thorough background checks and competence verification of all signed up workers. Zinake also provides insurance against accidents, vandalism and theft. There is a feedback/ review system to rate the users after every job/task. This ensures that there is continuous improvement of the Zinake platform for excellent user experience.

Why should Exhibition visitors come to our stand?.

Unemployment continues to remain high in North Africa while the number of young people in working poverty is expected to increase in sub-Saharan Africa, according to an ILO report. Zinake has the potential to touch and improve the lives of all these young people. Zinake has proved that it is possible to change this narrative immediately if all key stakeholders are engaged. Through partnership with key stakeholders and strategic partners (training institutions, government, special interest groups, etc), every person of working age can be equipped with a practical skill by which they can earn a living.

The Zinake model can be scaled to all other African countries. Zinake is looking for potential partners, mentors and investors who share in the vision of reducing poverty, idleness and unemployment amongst youth in Africa.
