As we welcome “The Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development” 28-30th, August this year, we believe that the voice of African people is the first and foremost important to be heard and echoed in this town.
Part one, the title of “Living in Japan”, welcomes Japanese residents with African roots as speakers to share their experiences and discuss to make the society better together. Part two seeks for how Africa and Japan can change the discourse of cooperation. Speakers will present Japan’s ODA survey conducted by African civil society organizations and projects by global fund as a case to show multilateral cooperations.
Join our symposium from the link below.
