“It is a great pleasure for me to know that The ICT Division, University of Asia Pacific and Bangladesh Computer Council are jointly hosting the 45th International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) World Finals for the first time in Dhaka. I welcome and thank all the participants from home and abroad for joining this prestigious event.
ICPC is the world’s largest programming contest for the college students. In this age of Globalization and Information Technology, programming is an essential tool for solving problems of diverse nature. As the world is transforming at an incredible pace, solving problems in an effective and timely manner requires greater knowledge, skills and expertise. I hope this ICPC would play a vital role as a platform for the young programmers to share and enrich their ideas and knowledge among themselves.
I have been informed that the participants are from the top ranked universities across the world and have already proven their deep coding knowledge, skills and abilities to solve intricate problems through diligence and fortitude. I believe that they would definitely become the great minds of the future to lead and provide solutions to the multidimensional problems of the world. I wish them all the success.
The ICT sector which has tremendous growth in last few years is one of the most promising sectors in Bangladesh. I hope this ICPC would play an inspirational role in motivating our young talents from ICT sectors.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the ICPC Foundation for selecting Dhaka to be the host of the 45th World Finals and wish the event a grand success.
Khoda Hafez, May Bangladesh Live Forever.”
