Isle de la Cite in the River Seine

Minister George Yeo

I was hosted to lunch at the Aga Khan's residence on the Isle de la Cite in the River Seine. It is a charming old property located on the same island as the Notre Dame Cathedral. Our conversation followed on our last meeting in Singapore last December. The Aga Khan has since decided to establish an Ismaili base in Singapore for his Foundation's work. I welcomed it and promised to facilitate its materialisation. There are a number of areas where Singapore and the Aga Khan Foundation can work together to develop capacity in developing countries. He thanked Singapore for our dental team's contribution to the government hospital in Bamiyan, Afghanistan, which is funded by the Aga Khan Foundation
