Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD)
Aug 31, 2016
In the early 1990s, Japan launched TICAD in order to refocus international attention on the importance and urgency of African development issues.
Japan has stressed the importance of "Africa's ownership" of its development as well as of the "partnership" between Africa and the international community. Japan co-hosted TICAD with the UNOSSA (Office of the Special Advisor on Africa), the UNDP, the AUC and World Bank.
TICAD VI was held on 27-28 August 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. This was the first time it was held in Africa. JETRO hosted the following events as TICAD VI Official Side-Events.
