Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the three-day conference for the first time at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in the capital introducing seven other new initiatives of the land ministry, a press release said.
The Ministry of Land is organizing the national land conference on March 29-31 to highlight the role of the Ministry in building a smart Bangladesh and to find out the future challenges of digitalization of land services.
Other objectives of the National Land Conference include informing citizens, government agencies, and stakeholders about the steps taken by the Ministry of Land, creating awareness among them about land management, and giving an idea about the existing laws and regulations related to land.
One of the seven initiatives is the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Monument and the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Guchchagram Complex, which was set up at Ramgatti in Laxmipur, a memorable place visited by the Father of the Nation.
The remaining six initiatives are Registration-Mutation Interconnection, Smart Land Map, Smart Land Records, Smart Land Pedia, Smart Land Service Center and Union Land Office.
Four seminars/panel discussions on various topics related to land management, such as 'Field Administration in Smart Land Management', 'Sairat and Khas Land Management', 'Acquisition Management, Government Cases, and Government Procurement Management', and 'Bangladesh Digital Survey', have been scheduled to take place during the afternoons of the day of inauguration ceremony and the following two days.
