Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD)

The Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) Summit will be held at Kenyatta International Convention Center in Nairobi, Kenya on 27th -28th August 2016. This will be the first time TICAD is being held in Africa since its inception in 1993.
It is indeed a great honour and privilege for Kenya and Africa in general to host the first ever TICAD Summit in the continent. It is a major milestone and indeed a big boost towards achieving a more strategic partnership with Japan that we all desire. More importantly however, it underscores the spirit of partnership and ownership which underpinned the very principles of the formation of TICAD in 1993.
