Tokyo, Japan,: The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has set up a new bureau dedicated to preparations for the delivery of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The new bureau, designated in English as the Bureau of Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games Preparation, was officially established on January 1 with the remit to formulate a multi-faceted plan for the delivery of the 2020 Games and to provide further impetus to the metropolitan government's sports administration capabilities.

Tsunekazu Takeda, IOC Member and President of the Japanese Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 Bid Committee, commented: “I am delighted that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has set up the new bureau so promptly to ensure that the preparation process for the Games proceeds smoothly and seamlessly.

"The Organising Committee, set to be launched by the end of February, will forge a close working relationship with the new bureau and, together, we will exert our utmost efforts to organise and deliver a truly memorable Games experience, and leave a legacy that will benefit future generations for many years to come.”
