LG Electronics will participate in the Bangladesh Smart City Project. It will help modernize rural areas by supplying digital signage solutions.
According to industry sources on April 1, LG Electronics recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Bangladesh's ministry of agriculture (DAE) and local distributor Global Brand. Under the MOU, LED outdoor information displays will be installed in 64 districts nationwide.
The digital signage supplied by LG Electronics is a product applied with minimum power consumption, maximum viewing angle, and dustproof and waterproof technologies.
Weather warnings and essential information are displayed, which is expected to play an important role in communication with stakeholders such as farmers and government officials as well as convenient agricultural activities.
Agriculture is the core industry of Bangladesh. Agriculture accounts for 22% of the total GDP, and 43% of the total population is engaged in agriculture. The Bangladeshi government is actively promoting its core industry, agricultural digitalization projects. It has also introduced $6 billion worth of agricultural stimulus measures to digitize agriculture.
“Agriculture is the most important area in the Bangladesh economy, and the development of agriculture is also very important for the future Bangladesh economy. LG Electronics is pleased to be the first to provide information display products and solutions to farmers and rural areas,” said Ko Young-il, managing director of LG Electronics.
