Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus has met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The Prime Minister gave a glowing tribute to Yunus for his global contribution for poor women and his long association with microcredit programme in Canada, which was inspired by his work in Bangladesh, said a Yunus Centre press release on Sunday.
He recollected his visit to Bangladesh accompanying his father in 1983, when he was only 12 years old. He especially mentioned his visit to Chittagong.
Prof Yunus invited him to visit Bangladesh again. They discussed the North American Social Business Forum, which will be held in Ottawa on September 28, 2016.     ?UNB
