During the 33rd Olympic Council of Asia General Assembly was held at Songdo Convensia on Saturday, on the sidelines of the 17th Asian Games. Indonesia signed of the host city contract for the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta - Palembang , Indonesia, in 2018.

Hanoi, capital of Vietnam, was due to host the next Asian Games - in 2019, one year before the Tokyo Olympics - but withdrew earlier this year due to economic problems.

The OCA President, HH Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, explained that Indonesia wanted to host the 18th Asian Games in 2018, rather than 2019, because of presidential elections in 2019, and met all the requirements of the OCA for hosting.
