Live Webcast with CEO Karim Khoja of Roshan Telecommunication, Afghanistan

Live Webcast with CEO Karim Khoja of Roshan Telecommunication, AfghanistanROSHAN, AFGHANISTAN’S MOBILE COMPANY

In 2003, when the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development established the Afghanistan mobile company, Roshan, there was virtually no telecommunications infrastructure in the country. Some Afghans actually had to walk to a neighboring country to make a phone call.

Today, Roshan’s 1,000 towers reach more than six million subscribers. Roshan is Afghanistan’s largest investor and recently, it made Fortune’s first ever Change the World list of businesses making an impact.

Spur and Aga Khan Foundation Canada invite Roshan CEO and Canadian native, Karim Khoja, to a discussion of the mobile tech sector in Afghanistan. The event will be moderated by May Jeong, an award-winning freelance writer based in Afghanistan.

The live webcast of this event will be November 5 at 7 p.m. EST. Additional details and registration for the webcast is on the Aga Khan Foundation Canada website.
