The world of mobile journalism has one more reference point: Jamil Khan, Bangladesh’s mobile trainer, author of the book “Mobile Journalism, the journalism of our time“.
Jamil Khan worked as a mobile journalism specialist in the large newspaper Prothom Alo and is now an assistant professor in the department of media studies and journalism at the University of Liberal Arts in Bangladesh. TMS spoke with him about mobile journalism and the book, but also about the smartphone economy that has made his country grow in a powerful way. This is an important reasoning precisely in these difficult days, in which the world is brutally affected by the coronavirus emergency.
The possibility of smartphone economy
The smartphone, he said in the chat that you will hear below in the YouTube link, has given Bangladesh the opportunity to experience a very important growth and to raise its head from a backward position. In many sectors, the economy and growth pass precisely through operations that are done with that device. Just as many sectors of the economy of that country have grown, therefore, many sectors can resist in the economy of our countries devastated by the economic consequences of the pandemic. And they can do it through the smartphone. Happy listening to the chat with Jamil and happy reading for those who know Bengali.
