DUSHANBE, May 17, 2016, Asia-Plus – On Wednesday May 17, Mr. Shukurjon Zuhurov, Chairman of the Majlisi Namoyandagon (Tajikistan’s lower house of parliament), met here with Mr. Akbar Ali Pesnani, Resident Representative of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in Tajikistan.

Muhammadato Sultonov, a spokesman for the Majlisi Namoyandagon, says that in the course of the talks Zuhurov appreciated AKDN’s support for enhancement of education, social, health and cultural sectors.

He also expressed gratitude to AKDN for support provided by it to Tajikistan’s professional parliament and the country’s population, Sultonov said.

The Aga Khan Development Network brings together individual agencies that operate in a range of areas – from economic development, education and rural development to cultural revitalization, health care and financial services.  Together these agencies collaborate towards a common goal – to build institutions and programs that can respond to the contemporary challenges and opportunities of social, economic and cultural growth in Tajikistan.
