At the same time i share our ongoing project and future plans from the Wikimedia Bangladesh. Again i want to say that it a great opportunity to met so many people in this conference and gather experiences.

We had a regional conference session in this event. I discussed our plan and ongoing activities of CC Bangladesh.

I am involved there as a consultant and involved in the process from the very beginning.
