The summit has adopted a number of documents, including a declaration on reinvigorating the Asian-African strategic partnership.
World leaders attending the summit have also focused on maritime cooperation, suggesting it is going to become one of the pillars of the new partnership between Asia and Africa.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo suggests the world needs to pay attention to the results of this meeting.
"The voices in the summit represent the rising voices of Asia and Africa, that's why the voices and decisions taken at this summit should not be ignored by anyone."
April 24th has also been declared "Asian-African Day."
This week's gathering in Indonesia coincides with the 60th anniversary of the first Asian-African Conference held in the Indonesian city of Bandung.
The leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping, are travelling to the city later today to commemorate the anniversary.
The Bandung Conference, held in 1955, was China's first foray into multilateral diplomacy following the founding of the People's Republic of China 6 years earlier.
It also set the groundwork for the creation of the so-called non-Aligned movement during the Cold War.
