Houston mayor declares Jan 14 'Yunus Day'

Houston, one of the America's largest cities, has declared January 14 'Muhammad Yunus Day' to honour Nobel laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus who is currently on a tour of the US.
Mayor Bill White made the declaration on Monday at a reception accorded to Prof Yunus, who was visiting Houston, Texas, as part of his whistle-stop tour to promote his new book 'Creating a world without poverty: Social business and the future of capitalism'.
The mayor also handed over a copy of the proclamation to Prof Yunus at the function attended by over 500 personalities, reports News World.
Prof Yunus described how micro-credit and social business can help alleviate poverty and move a country like Bangladesh forward.
He also addressed two other reception ceremonies hosted by the World Affairs Council and the Bangladesh-American Society. Over 2,000 people attended the functions.
