CAIRO, Aug 19 (MENA) - President Abdel Fattah El Sisi expressed deep appreciation to the people and government of Japan for hosting the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7 YOKOHAMA 2019), slated for August 28-30.

He noted that TICAD has been, since its launch in 1993, one of the key forums of various partners in support for Africa and its development aspirations.

In a message to TICAD7 Summit, posted on the Japanese Foreign Ministry's website on Monday, the Egyptian president said integration in Africa has been going on tangibly over the past two decades since the establishment of the African Union. The launching of the Africa Agenda 2063 and the Free Trade Zone in Africa are key milestones in African efforts to reach the aspired regional and economic integration in the continent, he said.

The AU has succeeded over the past years to formulate a number of targets on the Africa Agenda 2063 and give priority to development projects in Africa which help achieve sustainable development in the continent, he added.

President Sisi said he is looking forward to the contribution of TICAD and other strategic partners of Africa to enhance joint efforts to reach these aims.

The Egyptian leader voiced belief that TICAD7 would continue to focus on Africa's needs and priorities and use points of strength of its partners.
