|Felicitation Message to 2006 Nobel Laureate Professor Yunus and Grameen Bank|
Dhaka, 13 October 2006
Hon'ble Prof. Muhammad Yunus
Chariman of Grameen Bank
Dear Prof. Yunus,
On this auspicious and historic moment when all people of Bangladesh immersed in enormous euphoria and pride as you and your famed Grameen Bank were awarded the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, I have the honor and pleasure, on behalf the Chinese government and in my own name, to extend my warmest congratulations to you and the Grameen Bank for your remarkable contributions to the global sustainable peace and development through poverty alleviation initiatives based on micro credit schemes.
The spring up and growth of the Grameen Bank model vividly not only illustrates your personal outstanding genius and willpower, but also maps out how important the collective consensus, concern and confidence play in the long campaign liberating global poor below from repressive economic and social swamp.
We firmly believe that under your dynamic leadership the Grameen Bank will make even greater contribution to the mankind and the poverty reduction in particular in the days to come.
With warm regards and best wishes.
Ambassador of the People's Republic of China
To the People's Republic of Bangladesh
