THE recent visit by His Highness the Aga Khan has opened up Tanzania to greater investments in the economic and social development of the country.

The current Aga Khan, who has been a friend of Tanzania since before independence is a keen follower and partner in the socio-economic development of mostly underdeveloped or developing nations, especially in Africa and Asia. Shah Karim's love for Tanzania has amply been proved by his frequent visits to the country having also attended the Independence celebrations of Tanganyika in 1961.

Elle - Mystere de l'Aga Khan - Heritage - Interview

Elle Magazine (France) 20 Aout 1969

Paul Giannoli l'a rencontré pour ELLE: aujourd'hui, il n'appartient plus aux mille et une nuits mais c'est un jeune homme bien inséré dans son époque. Karim Aga Khan est moins un "dieu vivant", qu'un homme d'affaires et un chef religieux responsable de millions d'âmes qui n'a presque plus de temps pour les plaisirs de la vie.
