Australian PM visits Bangladeshi Australians’ restaurant

DHAKA, Jan 17, 2017 (BSS)-Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull visited the Grilled Restaurant, Primitivo, owned by two Bangladeshi Australians in Toowoomba of Australia on Monday.

Federal MP Dr John McVeigh and Toowoomba Mayor Cr Paul Antonio accompanied the Australian premier.

The guests tasted the food offered to them by the chef and staff while the owners, Adnun Khan and Albab Khan, discussed their food innovation projects and proposed plans to build multi-level car park in the city centre with the PM, says a media release here today.

The visit of the Prime Minister to the businesses of the Khan brothers was an honour for their businesses, and acknowledgement of their ongoing significant contributions to the local economy through generating employment for over 40 staff.

Adnun was born in Dhaka in 1985 and Albab in Canada in 1989. Their father, Professor Shahjahan Khan, was a faculty member of Dhaka University. The family is originally from Pukharia village in Gopalganj.
