The conference, which is pioneered by H.E President Erdogan of Turkey, is aimed at bringing together media practitioners.

The summit seeks to build on the 2021 third Turkey- Africa partnership summit in Istanbul. In his official opening remark, the Director of the Presidential Directorate of Communication, Professor Fahrenttie Aldun, stated, “the summit is to strengthen cooperation and coordination between Turkey and African media members and promotes experience sharing and develop partnership".

He reechoed that Turkey places increasing emphasis on its ties with the continent as Turkey and Africa are set to hold another comprehensive summit, focusing on media and communication strategies to boost their images and bilateral cooperation. Turkey aims to win alongside Africa and march together toward the future.

He stated that Turkey has frequently reaffirmed that Turkey’s approach in its ever-growing relations with African countries is based on equal partnership and a win-win principle, emphasizing the strong will to further develop commercial ties.

Turkey's relations with African countries have gained momentum, especially after the declaration of 2005 as the "Year of Africa" and the first Turkey -Africa Cooperation Summit in 2008. 

The vast majority of Turkey's forty-three embassies across the continent were opened following this summit. For example, twenty-seven embassies were established in African countries between 2009 and 2014. Having adopted a one-dimensional foreign policy shaped by its relations with the West for decades, Turkey has shifted to a more diversified, multidimensional and independent foreign policy since the end of the Cold War.
