Leading Africans are to meet to brainstorm on an input to the upcoming Tokyo Conference on African Development (TICAD II), due to be held in Japan in October or November 1998. The gathering of leading African policymakers, technocrats and civil society follows the lead taken by ECA in offering to assist African governments in preparing for the Tokyo Preparatory meeting. The meeting will consider a draft Issues Paper, aimed at facilitating the identification of the most critical issues, as well as the specific programs that would be covered by TICAD, as well as to ensure that visible results and a lasting impact are achieved from the TICAD process.
