Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad Ayaz, O.B.E, has been honored with the award of “K.B.E” by Her Majesty the Queen.
The London Gazette of 13 June has reported that, “THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased, on the occasion of the Celebration of Her Majesty’s Birthday, and on the advice of Her Majesty’s Tuvalu Ministers, to give orders for the promotion in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, and honored Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad Ayaz with “K.B.E” (Knight Commander of the Excellent Order of the British Empire).”
As a Knight, Iftikhar Ayaz has the title SIR. As such, he will be from now on: Sir Iftikhar Ahmad Ayaz, KBE, OBE.
Dr. Iftikhar A. Ayaz is a Tuvaluan consular official and business person.
Dr. Ayaz has not been Tuvalu‘s only consular representative in Europe in recent times, since Tuvalu has maintained a consulate in Basel, Switzerland, for some years, but Dr. Ayaz is that country’s principal, permanent consular appointee based in the United Kingdom.
Dr. Ayaz is also closely involved with the International Commission of Peace (ICOP), and holds doctorates in Human Development and Education, and a Master’s degree in Linguistics. He has worked closely with a number of United Nations-linked organizations.
