All venues and auxiliary facilities for the Beijing Olympic Games will be completed by the end of 2007 to ensure the normal operation of test events.

Wang Wei, executive vice president and secretary-general of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the 29th Olympiad, or BOCOG, made the remarks at the on-going Beijing-Hong Kong Economic Cooperation Symposium.

Construction projects are now under way with the completion of the Qinhuangdao Olympic Sports Center Stadium, where some of the preliminary Olympic football matches will be held.

In addition, Beijing's urban functions have improved and its service capabilities boosted. A large number of infrastructure projects, including highways and rail lines, have been completed.

A total of 37 competition venues and 76 training facilities are planned for the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
