Thailand aims to develop winter sports
President of the Children of Asia International Committee Mr. Vladimir Maksimov met with the Minister of Tourism and Sports of the Kingdom of Thailand Mr. Fifat Ratchakitprakan.
During the meeting, the projects of the Committee aimed at the development of children's sports were discussed. The parties also discussed the results of the participation of the Thailand team in the 7th Children of Asia International Sports Games, held in Vladivostok, as well as plans for participation in the upcoming 2nd Winter Children of Asia International Sports Games in Kuzbass.
The minister said that due to the improvement of the situation related to the coronavirus infection, Thailand has lifted restrictions and is ready to send a delegation to Kuzbass in several sports, including hockey.
He also noted that more and more Thailand youth are starting to engage in winter sports and expressed great interest in the new projects of the Committee, which, in his opinion, will contribute to the development of children's sports in Asia. The participation of the Thailand team in the 1st Winter Games on Sakhalin showed the demand for such programs.
