The millennium development goal was set to target goals for developing mainly the developing and less developed  countries.  After  completing  the  goals,  the world leaders are inspired to take a broader vision to take Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The goals are targeted with 17 visions for the development of all. The development program is an interconnected system of action to bridge the gap in different sectors of the countries with the world.

4th industrial revolution is an interconnected manufacturing and business process in a cyber-physical environment. The disruptive technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution are rapidly changing the systems and networks of business and manufacturing. These changes are seen across companies, industries, countries, and society. These technologies can also affect the environmental, economic, and social challenges of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals in values for business, society, and the environment.

According to a United Nations report, the current world population is

7.6 billion, expected to reach 8.6 billion by 2030, 9.8 billion by 2050 and 11.2 billion by 2100. Only in Asia will the population be 5.2 billion by 2050, more than half of the world’s population. Three billion of them will live in urban areas. Urban areas will be the centres of higher education, innovation, and technological development for economic activities. The quality and efficiency of urban areas will determine the country’s long-term competitiveness and socio-economic and environmental stability.

Bangladesh has a reasonable GDP growth rate and a globally compatible policy for innovation and  technological  development,  education,  health,  and the environment. It will meet the demand of the world in 2050 and can contribute to the global economy from Asia with PRC, India, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Thailand and Malaysia.
