Paris, France, 27 April 1999 — France's Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hubert Vedrine, and His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (Spiritual Leader) of the Ismaili Muslims, today signed an Accord of Co-operation between France and the Association Aga Khan (Imamat) whose members include some of the principal agencies and affiliates of the Aga Khan Development Network.

The Accord seeks to strengthen France's co-operation with the Aga Khan Development Network in the social, cultural, economic and humanitarian fields wherever the Network operates. A joint liaison committee comprising three representatives from each of the Foreign Ministry and the Association Aga Khan will determine co-operation priorities and implementation.

The Ismaili Imamat - the office of spiritual leadership of the Ismaili Muslims held by the Aga Khan - is independent of political allegiances, but committed to the Islamic ideal of respect for dignity of the human being and peace among nations. In the Muslim tradition, the Imamat's responsibilities extend beyond the spiritual leadership of the Ismailis to a concern for the quality of life of not only Ismailis but also all those amongst whom they live, regardless of origin or faith.

The Aga Khan Development Network is a group of private, non-denominational, international development agencies established by the Aga Khan to improve living conditions and opportunities in specific regions of the developing world. Its agencies have individual mandates that range from health, education and culture to the enhancement of non-governmental agencies, rural development, improved infrastructure and the promotion of private sector enterprise.

Direction and support for these various activities has come from the Aga Khan's office firstly in Paris since the late 1950's and from his Secretariat, at Gouvieux, since 1978.

The Accord builds on collaboration between agencies and affiliates of the Aga Khan Development Network, and national and international organisations, both private and public, including PROPARCO, a member of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Electricite de France (EdF), Université de Paris-Sorbonne, Alcatel, Medecins sans Frontieres, l'Institute du Monde Arabe, Paris, the European Union, UNESCO, the World Health Organisation and the World Bank.

The Aga Khan Development Network's more than fifty partners include governments, multilateral agencies, non-governmental organisations, private sector institutions, communities and individuals. Enabling agreements with governments or development agencies of Bangladesh, Canada, the Cote d'Ivoire, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Pakistan, Uganda, Tajikistan, Tanzania, the United Kingdom and the European Union permit optimal use of the Aga Khan Development Network's resources, and in certain cases, authorise the establishment of diplomatic missions to make its humanitarian and development endeavours more effective.

In recent years, the Aga Khan Development Network has disbursed an average of US$140 million annually on development and humanitarian activities. The Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development and affiliated companies control assets in excess of US$1 billion.

Prince Amyn Aga Khan is the new Non-Resident Personal Representative to Bangladesh of his elder brother Karim Aga Khan.



He presented his credentials to Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali on Thursday.

The foreign ministry said Ali welcomed him to Bangladesh and felicitated him on his appointment.

He conveyed his appreciation to Aga Khan for the growing interest and involvement of Aga Khan Institutions in sectors that are contributing to institutional development of Bangladesh.

The foreign minister said he looked forward to strengthened relations, recalling the signing of the Agreement of Protocol between Bangladesh and the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in September 2013.

Prince Amyn Aga Khan expressed his “personal gratitude” to the government for the accommodation and support extended to the AKDN.

He said the Network planned to “increase its presence” in Bangladesh, having worked here for over five decades in a number of sectors integral to Bangladesh’s development such as early childhood development, pre-tertiary education, and financial services.

They also discussed potential collaboration across wider streams of education, health, culture, tourism, and hospitality sectors in Bangladesh.

Following the presentation of his credentials, Prince Amyn welcomed the State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam to the opening ceremony of the AKDN Office of the Resident Representative in Dhaka.

He said this office opening was both “historic and symbolic”.

“It is historic because it reaffirms His Highness the Aga Khan’s and the AKDN’s continued commitment towards collaboration with the government of Bangladesh and the diplomatic and donor partners,” the foreign ministry said.

Diplomats and representatives of the donor agencies were present, among other, at the ceremony.

Please note that this is not the constitutional position of a Resident Representative of AKDN and hence does not fall under the Jamats DDA - Dept of Diplomatic Affairs (which is also headed by Shafik Schedina as is DJI)

This is a Non-Resident position of the representative of Aga Khan in Bangladesh, just like Prince Rahim being the same in Canada.

India-Uganda partnership foundation for future economic progress: Amin Mawji

Kampala (Uganda), Feb. 23 : Amin M. Mawji, OBE, Diplomatic Representative, Aga Khan Development hailed the growing partnership between India and Uganda, saying the relationship is building the foundation for future economic progress.

Mawji said the association between the two countries has been a durable one and was not shaken by any sort of upheaval.

"It has been a very durable relationship. It has been a very profitable relationship for both the communities. It is a relationship which is a foundation for future economic progress," Mawji told ANI in an exclusive conversation.

Asserting that Uganda is a wonderful place to start a manufacturing industry, Mawji said there is huge pool of labour here, comprising young and talented people.

"There is a huge pool of labour, young, talented and bright people coming up who provide a large market on the one hand, a pool of resources, on the other hand, for all kinds of economic activities. The opportunity here is tremendous," he said.

Commenting on the trade imbalance, Mawji said Uganda has much to offer to India and so now the opportunity is to make sure that there is enough value addition within Uganda to serve the market in India.

"There is an opportunity now to make sure that the resources of Uganda are used to generate products and services for other parts of the world. India is a huge market, over a billion people. Uganda has much to offer, but not just to India, but to Asia and across other parts of Africa too.

Mawji reiterated that India-Uganda relationship is a fruitful one and both the countries have a lot to offer each other.

EAC Secretary General meets Aga Khan Representative in Nairobi


East African Community Secretariat; Nairobi, Kenya; 12 April 2017:
The East African Community (EAC) Secretary General, Amb. Liberat Mfumukeko met the Diplomatic Representative of the Aga Khan in the Republic of Kenya, Dr. Azim Lakhani on Tuesday 11th April, 2017, in Nairobi, Kenya.

The meeting was a follow-up of the Secretary General’s visit to His Highness the Aga Khan on 11th November 2016, where the Secretary General and His Highness the Aga Khan explored the possibility of expanding the Aga Khan Integrated Health Systems across all the EAC Partner States, especially in secondary cities like Kisumu, Mombasa, Arusha, Mwanza, Entebbe, Jinja, Butare and Ngozi, among others.

Amb. Mfumukeko had also requested capacity building support from His Highness the Aga Khan to the East African Community through scholarship programmes to enhance capacity of staff in different projects and programmes.

The two officials discussed in detail the Financing Agreement signed recently between the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) and the French Co-operation Agency (AFD) for the expansion of hospitals in Kisumu and Mombasa worth USD28 Million. Another Financing Agreement to expand the Aga Khan hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, had already been signed and implementation is on-going.

In Investment Promotion Service (IPS), especially in the areas of Agro-processing by the Aga Khan, Dr. Lakhani informed the Secretary General that currently, AKDN had an Export Agro-processing industry to empower rural areas from production to export. This is already being implemented in Kenya with a programme of 7,000 farmers involved through Premier Food Inc (food processing); Frigoken (vegetable processing) and All fruit (fruits processing), amongst others.

The Secretary General urged AKDN to ensure similar programmes are replicated in other EAC Partner States. In this regard, it was agreed that an EAC Delegation would visit the AKDN Food Processing Plant in Ruiru and Murang’a in Kenya with a view to rolling it out to other Partner States.

Nazim Ahmad: Tenho orgulho em dizer que somos portugueses e só depois ismailis

É visto como um dos grandes responsáveis pelas estreitas relações entre Portugal e o Aga Khan e a comunidade ismaili, cuja sede mundial está a ser instalada em Lisboa. No momento em que se comemora o Jubileu de Diamante do Príncipe Aga Khan, há 60 anos no cargo, cabe a palavra a Nazim Ahmad.

On October 2, 2017 Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa Mikhail Bogdanov received a delegation of the Aga Khan Foundation led by Shafik Sachedina, personal representative of the spiritual leader of the Nizari Ismailis Prince Karim Aga Khan IV.

The discussion focused on the current situation in the Middle East with an emphasis on the developments in Syria and Afghanistan. Shafik Sachedina praised Russia’s consistent and principled position in favour of quickly and peacefully resolving conflicts in the region and waging an uncompromising fight against terrorism and extremism. While discussing problems related to Syria, the emphasis was on the importance of establishing a constructive negotiating process between the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic and the opposition in order to promote a political solution to the Syrian crisis in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254.
