This visit was planned ahead of the President’s visit to GBAO to celebrate National Unity Day from June 25-28, aimed at familiarizing high level government officials on the progress of University of Central Asia’s Khorog campus.

Accompanied by AKDN Diplomatic Representative for Tajikistan Akbar Ali Pesnani, the delegation also visited UCA’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (UCA SPCE), Aga Khan Lyceum, as well as Khorog Diagnostic Unit. Mr. Pesnani welcomed the guests to Khorog campus.

“It is an honor for AKDN that Parliamentarians are visiting UCA – currently one of our most important investments in Tajikistan. The University has come a long way and is now ready to begin its academic programs in 2016. This has been possible due to continuous support of the Tajik government,” said Mr. Pesnani.

“The Tajik government considers AKDN as a valuable and reliable partner. We have received a very positive and memorable impression of UCA, which I believe will become a platform for discussion, analysis, research and exchange of best practices in future,” said Mrs. Yusufi.
