Our two-way trading relationship grew by more than 11 percent last year and we cooperate closely in counter-terrorism and tacking other transnational crime. The 49,000 people of Bangladesh descent in Australia make a highly valued contribution to Australian society,” he said in a message received on Thursday.


“I acknowledge Bangladesh’s leadership in response to the Rohingya crisis. As you’re aware, Australia has committed $70 million in humanitarian relief, most of which has been directed to provide food, shelter and other essential and other essential services to those displaced,” Morrison said.


He also expressed his willingness to work with the Bangladesh Prime Minister to strengthen the bilateral relationship.


On August 24 last, Scott Morrison was sworn in as the 30th Prime Minister of Australia.


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina congratulated him on his assumption of office on August 26.
