He added that the region could make significant strides if member states collaborated more in implementing joint projects and programmes. The spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims made the remarks in Arusha after signing a trilateral agreement between his Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), the German Development Bank (KFW) and the EAC for a health project.
Under the agreement, Germany will grant some 10 million euros in support of the Aga Khan University Health Programme in Arusha. EAC is the recipient of the funds while the Aga Khan University is the project executing agency.
His Highness said he was impressed by the project and thanked the German government for the partnership and assistance. via thecitizen.co.tz.
