Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Good morning,
May prosperity be upon us all,

In this morning’s limited meeting, together we will see the preparation for the implementation of Asian Para Games that is getting closer.

I want the momentum of the Asian Games’ success that we have achieved to keep going and be maintained in the implementation of Asian Para Games.

We want to be a good host, to offer a comprehensive service to approximately 2,888 athletes and 1,826 officials who will participate in 18 sports in the Asian Para Games.

Therefore, in this morning’s meeting, I want to ensure the preparation for the venues, the technical preparation for the implementation, the preparation for the accomodation for athletes, transportation for athletes, and especially, I want free access for people with disabilities to watch the games played in the Asian Para Games.

I shall conclude my introductory remarks, and lastly, I want INAPGOC to learn from the experience of INASGOC in the organization of the Asian Games. We should improve the things that have been done well and those that need to be fixed.

All of these could be our valuable experience in organizing world-class events.

I conclude my remarks this morning. I invite the Minister of Youth and Sports and the Chairman of the INAPGOC to have the floor. (PR, Cabinet Secretariat)(AN/AW/YM/Naster)
