As part of his official Golden Jubilee visit to France, Mawlana Hazar Imam spent the day meeting with senior government leaders.

Mawlana Hazar Imam visited the French Ministry of the Interior at Place Beauvau, where he met Michèle Alliot-Marie, Minister of the Interior, Overseas France and Local Authorities. Afterwards, Hazar Imam and Prince Rahim were welcomed by Prime Minister François Fillon at the Hôtel Matignon, the Prime Minister's official residence.

Mawlana Hazar Imam then travelled to Quai d'Orsay, the site of the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, where he met Bernard Kouchner, France's Minister of Foreign and European Affairs. There, Hazar Imam and the Minister signed a partnership agreement for development between the French Republic and the Aga Khan Development Network. The agreement builds on a number of successful AKDN projects to which the French Government, French institutions and French companies have contributed.

Following the signing of the agreement, the Foreign Minister hosted a dinner in honour of Mawlana Hazar Imam, which was also attended by Prince Amyn, Prince Hussain and Princess Zahra.
