The Minister outlined a number of new steps the Chinese government is taking in cooperation with the Chinese National Olympic Committee to prevent corruption and ensure clean Olympic Games.
Speaking at the meeting, the IOC President appreciated the efforts and achievements of China in fighting against corruption. He congratulated the Minister on the great work being done with regard to the Olympic Winter Games by the Chinese authorities in terms of openness and transparency. “We both have the same interests to have clean sport free of corruption. I welcome this new important step in the cooperation with the IOC and, I appreciate very much that the Chinese government and the Chinese NOC are cooperating closely to fight corruption in relation to the organisation of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.
The IOC President also invited China to take part in a meeting of the International
Sport Integrity Partnership alongside the International Forum for Sport Integrity in Lausanne in early 2017. The IOC’s initiative was already welcomed in the closing declaration of the International Anti-Corruption Summit organised by British Prime Minister David Cameron last Thursday in London.
