Japan angles for more African business

The recent Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI) that drew 10 000 delegates to Nairobi, Kenya for its maiden summit on the continent sharply re-focussed the attention of the international community on the urgency of Africa’s development. This sentiment was expressed in an interview on the sidelines of the two-day conference with Ned Sibeya, deputy chief of national development at the National Planning Commission, who was part of the Namibian delegation led by Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila. “The TICAD VI Declaration and its implementation plan are set to support African priorities, in line with Agenda 2063 and national development strategies. Through the TICAD VI Summit, Japan focused its cooperation with Africa on the areas of building quality infrastructure, developing human capacity and enhancing stability. “Japan announced the future establishment of the Japan-Africa Public and Private Economic Forum, through which Namibia and the rest of Africa can benefit economically by enhancing trade and business cooperation,” Sibeya further elaborated.
