Science and Technology is not an issue anywhere in Bangladesh, not in national budget discussions, not in newspapers and talk shows of TV channels, not also in the scientific communities, e-mail groups of scientists like bdresearchers, microbiologydu etc..
Neither Bangladesh Academy of Sciences nor other scientific professional organizations try to draw the attention of government for giving due importance to scientific research.
Shouldn't Science and Technology be an issue in Bangladesh? Can we change days without giving science and technolgy due importance? Will we be able to make progress at expected pace if we don't give due importance to scientific research and technology development?
