Japan to organize TICAD VII 2019 in Yokohama
Japan has announced that it will organize the Tokyo International Conference of African Development (TICAD) VII 2019 in Yokohama, Japan. The dates of the conference will be fixed after consulting with African nations.
Held every three years, a key aim of TICAD is to mobilize support for Africa’s socio-economic development, peace and security, governance, and human rights agendas. The TICAD VI Summit was held in Nairobi, Kenya, in August 2016, under the theme of 'Advancing Africa’s Sustainable Development Agenda – TICAD Partnership for Prosperity.'
