Seminar on ‘two sessions’ held

National Games meeting held in GZ

Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung co-chaired a meeting with Head of the Sports Bureau of Guangdong Province Cui Jian in Guangzhou today on the preparatory work for the 15th National Games, the 12th National Games for Persons with Disabilities and the 9th National Special Olympic Games.


Mr Yeung said the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government is grateful for the central government's trust and support in letting it co-host the three games with Guangdong and Macau in 2025.


He explained that the goal of co-chairing the meeting on the preparatory work for the games with Cui Jian in Guangzhou is to closely liaise with the Guangdong Provincial Government and review the work progress.


The meeting was also conducted with the purpose of making the games a success and uniting all sectors of the community by deepening collaboration between Hong Kong and other cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, he added.


Mr Yeung and his delegation visited the Guangdong Olympic Sports Center to learn more about the operation and management of the centre and subsidiary facilities as well as the improvement works.


Given that the 15th National Games will be co-hosted by Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau next year, the Culture, Sports & Tourism Bureau set up the National Games Coordination Office last year to fully take on the planning and implementation work of the games.
