Lastnewsbd, 27th July, Dhaka: A Yunus Centre press release was issued on Wednesday to announce the cancellation of the high-profile gathering but it did not give any reason for the cancellation.

Gass, responsible for implementing UN Sustainable Development Goals, was expected to be the keynote speaker at the conference. The press release added that roughly 2,000 people, among them about 400 foreigners from 50 countries, registered to participate in the conference. The two-day 7th international conference on social business scheduled to be held in Zirabo on the outskirts of Dhaka on 28-29 July has been cancelled.

Yunus Centre requested the guests and participants to cancel their plans to attend the conference. “We humbly apologise to the guests and participants, local and from around the world, who have spent their time and money to take part in this conference,” the centre said. However, some of the programmes of the conference will be livecast via the Yunus Centre facebook page. The online session will start at 10:30am Friday.
