"My belief is this time around, we should have the best Olympic Games ever," Jappie Mhango, treasurer of Malawian National Olympic Committee (NOC), told Xinhua News Agency on Thursday.


"When we went to Beijing last August, we went around a number of facilities, including the national stadium and the one for shooting. We came to know that Beijing was moving towards the best competition ever, and I am convinced that China will be able to do that. " Mhango said in an exclusive interview.


The Malawian NOC official made the statement on the sideline of Olympic Solidarity Forum preparing a delegation for participation in the Olympic Games, which was organized and funded by the International Olympic Committee.


"It is very impressive. As a country, China has made tremendous progress," the treasurer said.


Mhango said the Beijing authorities have vowed to cut the number of private vehicles on the streets and offer public transport. "It will improve the traffic and reduce congestion. Transport will also be made available to various delegations. I believe the organizers in charge of transport are doing something commendable, " The official said.


As for the environment concerns, Mhango said," When we went to Beijing last time and stayed there for a couple of days, there was not any problem (on the environment). And now I am back, I still enjoy good health and nothing is happening. It is not like that some media have portrayed."


But he reminded Beijing," there is still room for improvement."
