Abe said the Africans will win the freedom and prosperity they deserve and the focus of TICAD-6 as industrialization, healthcare, and stability.

Kenyatta said most nations which escape the grip of poverty do so by industrializing while Abe agreed that industrialization is the key to economic development. Japan is able to provide Africa with high technology and personnel training, especially in agriculture.

At TICAD-5 in 2013, Japan pledged to support 31 billion USD for African countries in 5 years and had disbursed 67% of the amount by the end of 2015.Africa
