Thank you, Mr. Wang. Now, let's welcome Mr. Zhou Jinqiang for his brief introduction.

Zhou Jinqiang:

Friends from the media, good morning. We are now just 100 days away from the opening of the Chengdu Universiade, and preparations have entered the final stage. Competition organization is key to the success of the event, and is currently the primary focus of our preparations. Thanks to the efforts made in the early stages, phased tasks for the competition organization work for the Chengdu Universiade have been smoothly completed. Now, I would like to update you on the competition organization work.

First, the competition organization team has been assembled and established.

The Ministry of Education and the General Administration of Sport have jointly put together a team of core personnel to carry out the competition organization work for the Chengdu Universiade. They are responsible for providing professional guidance and technical supervision in terms of venue equipment, facilities, registration and scheduling. This March, we convened a special meeting on the competition organization work in Beijing. At the end of this month, we will hold another meeting to clarify the competition organization team's work requirements, review the competition organization's progress and the coordination with venue teams for each project, and ensure that the universal competition policy is implemented at the venue level. Furthermore, we have selected 1,077 domestic technical officials to work alongside international counterparts to complete the competition refereeing and organizational management tasks, among others.

Second, the in-competition organization system has been established.

The in-competition organizational system has been established, with the teams responsible for the venues serving as the backbone and the organizing committee, committees for each division, and venue teams collaborating closely and efficiently. The operation and emergency response plans for the command and coordination center have been finalized, and the center has been undergoing trial operations since March 3. Prior to the opening ceremony, we will conduct a series of test contests to get prepared for real games and improve our organizational work and command system so as to ensure smooth and efficient operation.

Third, test events are progressing in an orderly manner.

The Chengdu Universiade underwent a lengthy preparation period due to postponement. As early as 2021, we organized 17 single national games as test events to evaluate the organization and operation of the games as well as the logistical services. During these events, we identified a list of problems and continued to optimize our work. In early June, we will conduct comprehensive rehearsals and tests for the entire games' progress to ensure that the goals, standards, and needs of the games will be met during the event. We will test and check out the operation of venues, equipment, and command centers to further enhance our operational capabilities.

Fourth, registration for the games is underway.

Registration for the Chengdu Universiade is divided into four stages: intentional registration, pre-registration, group registration, and individual registration. Currently, we are in the group registration stage, and we are committed to providing excellent services to welcome young athletes from around the world to Chengdu. At the same time, we are actively working on logistical services for the delegations that have already registered for the games, providing detailed information about procedures for arrival and departure, accommodations, dining, training, and competition to ensure that those procedures proceed smoothly and on schedule.

That concludes my update on the preparations for the Chengdu Universiade. We invite the media to provide coverage and support for the event. Thank you for your attention.
