Prince Karim Aga Khan, Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslims, Monday expressed his interest in investing in various socioeconomic sectors, including financial services, education and health, in Bangladesh.
He also offered his community’s services to build bridges between Bangladesh and Central Asian countries where they have presence in promoting socioeconomic relations.
Prince Aga Khan, who arrived in Dhaka Monday afternoon on a four-day visit, expressed his willingness as he called on the chief adviser, Fakhruddin Ahmed.
Before the formal meeting, Fakhrudin and Prince Aga Khan had a one-to-one parley for a while in the Chief Adviser’s office.
Responding to the Ismaili spiritual leader, Fakhruddin said Bangladesh would definitely try to take advantage of the support of the Aga Khan community in expanding trade and investment opportunities with the Central Asian countries.
Aga Khan visited the National Martyr Memorial at Savar after arriving at Dhaka airport.
