The two day TICAD VI Summit came to a close on Sunday 28th August, 2016 with the adoption of the Nairobi Declaration and its implemattion plan; the TICADVI Nairobi Implentaion Plan. The Declaration aims at accelerating Africa's economic development through its partneship with Japan.

The Nairobi Declaration mainly focuses on three key pillars: Economic Diversification & Industrialization; Promoting Resilient Health systems for Quality of Life, and, Promoting Social Stability for shared properity.

To faciliate the implentation of these key pillars, Japan pledged aproximately USD 30 Billion to invest in the key areas in the higlhited pillars for the next three years through Public and Private Partneships, across the continent. The USD 30 billion is in addition to the USD 32 Billion that Japan pledged to Africa over a five year period at the last TICAD Summit in Yokohama in 2013. This year's pledge is therefore expected to enhance and build on the projects laucned three years ago.
