Xinhua News Agency, Tokyo, May 12 (Reporter Wang Zijiang) In order to bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics, the Japanese city of Sapporo recently established a national organization called the “Propaganda Committee”, hoping to strengthen the Olympic propaganda and win more Japanese National support.
According to Kyodo News, there are more than 30 members of the “Propaganda Committee”, including Olympic and Paralympic athletes and representatives from the political and economic circles. The chairman is Keigang Iwata, chairman of the Sapporo Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The committee will introduce the meaning of hosting the Olympic Games to the citizens, and the relevant content will also be included in the bid plan submitted to the International Olympic Committee.
Sapporo Mayor Katsuhiro Akimoto expressed at the inaugural meeting that he hoped that Sapporo could attract talents and investment from all over the world by hosting the Winter Olympics and contribute to the overall development of Japan. Yasuhiro Yamashita, chairman of the Japanese Olympic Committee, also said that the establishment of the “Propaganda Committee” is to let the people know that hosting the Olympic Games is of great significance.
