I can confidently say that the IOC will continue to support such events that encourage and encourage children and young people to engage in sports in the spirit of self-improvement, fair play and friendship". "Let me thank and congratulate the Children of Asia Games International Committee which, for more than 20 years, has been providing the young people of Asia with a unique sporting experience. Thank you for your strong support and commitment to sport and its values".
"Our large sports family has become bigger thanks to sports lovers, healthy life followers, Olympians, champions of Asia and the world for the last 20 years. Despite difficulties appearing in any case, we were able to overcome them and make Children of Asia Games a true launch pad for thousands of young athletes, give them an Olympic spirit, a sense of respect and tolerance for representatives of other nationalities and cultures. I am sure that Children of Asia Games were and will serve as a symbol of friendship, peace and the beginning of one’s Olympic path".
"The strongest young athletes from all over the Asian continent gathered again in one place. For many of them, Children of Asia Games will be the first international start in a sports career. Indeed, many athletes who began their sports career at the Children of Asia Games subsequently achieved success in sports and brought many brilliant victories to their countries".
"Thousands of children from more than 20 countries have participated in these Games. Many of them connected their future with sport. They have successfully performed at Olympic Games, championships of the world and Europe. It is important that the Games contribute not only to promotion of a healthy lifestyle and Olympic principles, but also to strengthening of international cultural cooperation".
