Taipei, October 19, 2017: The Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee hosted a one-day international conference on Women and Sport entitled “Education, Policies and Resource Integration” in conjunction with the APEC Sports Policy Network.

Attended by over 200 participants from the athletic and academic fields and various governmental bodies, the conference was the fourth edition since its inception in 2011.

It brought together delegates from APEC members to share policies and best practices in promoting women’s participation in sports through education.

Natalya Sipovich, Chairwoman of the OCA Women and Sport Committee, Dr. Supitr Samahito, Vice President of Thailand NOC and a member of the OCA Women and Sport Committee, and Vickie Saunders, Founder of The Sponsorship Consultants in Australia, were invited as keynote speakers to share their experiences and views.

The conference opened with a performance by a women’s gymnastics team from Chinese Taipei who won a silver medal at the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei.

Fong-Chi Chu, Executive Board member and Chairwoman of the Women and Sport Commission of the Chinese Taipei NOC, welcomed delegates and said the conference was a good platform for sharing best practices and cross-sector dialogue.

Representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and city governments also attended the conference, which took place on October 12.
