  2. The Nairobi Implementation Plan that provides the strategies and  way forward to TICAD in the next 3 years,
  3. The TICAD VI Business Declaration that seeks to entrench the role of the private sector in the TICAD Process
  4. “A call to Action” arising from the Spouses Programme which revolved round resilient health systems, environment and social prosperity.

The following were identified as the main benefits accruing from the TICAD VI Summit;

  • For a period of three years  from 2016 to 2016, Japan will invest  for the future  of Africa through implementing measures centering on developing quality infrastructure, building resilient health systems and laying the foundations for peace and stability, amounting  to approximately USD 30 billion under public-private partnership.  These measures align with the priority areas in the Nairobi Declaration and include human resource development to 10 million people (“Empowerment”) by making  use of the  strength of Japan (“Quality”). 
  • With regard to “Economic Diversification and Industrialization,” one of the priority areas in the Nairobi Declaration of TICAD VI,  it is envisaged that quality infrastructure will be developed as the foundation of the economy and promote the private sector’s activities as the core of economic activities.
  • Promote Private  Sector Activity through such means as Human Resource Development and Productivity Improvement through provision of training to 30 thousand people – hence building on the already ongoing ABE Initiative.t
  • Improve the Business Environment with Contribution by Private Sector, in this regard, the “Japan Africa Public-Private Economic Forum”  will be launched to promote dialogue between public and private sectors.
