The Namibian president Hifikepunye Pohamba on Monday left for Japan to attend the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD IV), saying the conference is aimed at strengthening economic ties between the Asian nation and Africa.

Pohamba, who is accompanied by three cabinet ministers, told journalists at Hosea Kutako airport in Windhoek that the conference is expected to reflect on rising prices of food and oil, expressing the hope that the outcome would be favourable to the Africa.

We should reflect, among other things, about food and oil because when you are talking about development, you are talking of producing and you cannot produce without fuel, Pohamba said.

Pohamba will also visit Malaysia on May 31 to June 02 before attending the Rome High-Level conference on food and security which will kick off on June 03 in Italy.
