Olympic Solidarity/OCA regional forum update

03 Mar 2014
Manama, Bahrain: The acting general secretary of the Bahrain Olympic Committee, Abdulrahman Askar, affirmed the kingdom’s readiness to host the Olympic Solidarity/Olympic Council of Asia Regional Forum for West, Central and South Asian National Olympic Committees on May 7-8. This came during Askar’s meeting with representatives of the OCA in Kuwait City on the sidelines of the GCC National Olympic Committees meetings.

The meeting was also attended by BOC sports advisor Abduljalil Asad, Information Technology director Nawaf Abdulrahman, BOC International Affairs executive coordinator Ahmed Al Qarainees and the Director of the OCA’s Asian Games department, Haider Farman.

During the meeting, the two parties discussed all aspects of the Forum, both in terms of organisation and themes that will be highlighted.

Askar said the BOC would prepare a comprehensive plan to accomplish all the arrangements and facilities for the event, pointing out that the committee had begun its preparations quite early and would use all resources at its disposal to run a successful event.

Mr Farman said the OCA would be supervising the forum in accordance with its themes, and that representatives of 26 NOCs from the three zones would attend. The first day will feature Olympic Solidarity programmes provided by the International Olympic Committee and presented by OS delegates from Switzerland.

On the second day, representatives of organising committees for three major multi-sports events taking place in 2014 will update NOC delegates on their preparations; namely the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea, in September-October, the 2nd Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, in August and the 4th Asian Beach Games in Phuket, Thailand, in November.

The OS/OCA Regional Forum for South East and East Asian NOCs will be held in Myanmar from May 11-12.
