The decision to host TICAD VI Summit for the first time in Africa was reached during the TICAD V Summit in 2013 when it was agreed that the venue of subsequent TICAD Summits be alternated between Japan and Africa. The interval of summit meetings was also shortened from every 5 years to three (3) years.
