22 Apr 2014
Kuwait: The Olympic Solidarity (OS)/Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) Regional Forum for West, Central and South Asian National Olympic Committees (NOC) on May 7-8 will focus on the Incheon Asian Games Pre-Delegation Registration Meetings (DRM) and good governance of NOCs, according to an OCA official. The OCA's Asian Games Director, Mr Haider Farman, said the OCA would be supervising the forum in accordance with its main themes.

"The first day will feature the Olympic Solidarity programme provided by the International Olympic Committee and presented by OS delegates from Switzerland. Their main topic will be NOCs good governance. This will be one of our main themes and we want to raise the awareness and importance of what good governance could bring to NOCs," said Mr Farman.

"On the second day we will have three Games organising committees present detailed information on three major Games to be held in 2014 -  the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea, in September-October, the 2nd Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, in August and the 4th Asian Beach Games in Phuket, Thailand, in November.

"OCA will use this platform to serve as a Pre-DRM for all the NOCs and the Incheon Asian Games Organising Committee. It will help IAGOC to evaluate the scale of the Games and decide proper logistical arrangements at an early stage."

Olympic Solidarity chose Bahrain in April 2013 to host the OS/OCA Regional Forum for West, Central and South Asian NOCs on May 7-8, 2014. A total of 26 NOCs from the three zones will attend.

The OS/OCA Regional Forum for South East and East Asian NOCs will be held in Myanmar from May 11-12.
