The Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) will be convened in 2016.  TICAD is an international forum for summit and ministerial level policy dialogue on African development.  Since 1993, Japan has been leading and co-organizing the conference with the World Bank, African Union (AU), the United Nations and the UNDP. TICAD I was held in 1993, and until 2013, 5 conferences were held in Tokyo and Yokohama every five years. Going forward, the conference is planned to be convened in every three years, and the next round in 2016 will be held in Africa for the first time.

As a lead up tothe TICAD VI, the World Bank Tokyo Office organized a series of seminars to discuss TICAD and various aspects of African development. 

On the first of the series, we welcomed His Excellency Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Mr. Belmiro Jose
Malate, the Embassy of the Republic of Mozambique to Japan, who is playing an important role in the African Diplomatic Corps in Tokyo (ADC) on the TICAD, to speak about the potential of advanced Africa-Japan partnership with a view to
