TICAD and Africa: Lessons for Coordination and Impact
The sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI), held in Nairobi on 27 and 28 August 2016, marked the first summit in the TICAD process to take place on the African continent.
Through high-level policy exchange focused on economic transformation, strengthening health systems and inclusive growth for social stability, the ambition of TICAD VI was to bolster mutual partnership as well as business and development engagement between Japan and African countries.
This seminar will provide an early assessment of the outcomes of TICAD VI. Speakers will offer business, diplomatic and development perspectives on the impacts of the TICAD process and how Japan-Africa links fit with the diverse relationships that African countries are building with non-traditional partners.
