State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Mohammad Ali Arafat and Mauritius Information Technology, Communication and Innovation Minister Deepak Balgobin at a meeting have put emphasis on strategic actions to combat the spread of misinformation through social media.

They underpinned the need for strategic actions against the spread of misinformation as Ali Arafat paid a courtesy call on Balgobin at a city in Mauritius on Friday, said an official release issued Saturday.

They also talked about mutual cooperation between Bangladesh and Mauritius over the use of satellites, use of technology by expatriate workers to send remittances to the country, investment opportunities for Mauritian investors in Bangladesh, and opportunities for Bangladeshi workers in Mauritius.

On the same day, Arafat visited a spinning mill in Mauritius, inquired about the Bangladeshi workers working there and spoke with them.

The state minister left Dhaka for Mauritius on 22 April to attend the First Ministerial Conference on Drug Trafficking and Substance Abuse in the Western Indian Ocean in Mauritius.
