THE FIRST DEPUTY HEAD OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATION WELCOMED PARTICIPANTS OF THE GAMES

I extend greeting to the participants, the organizers, and the guests of the 1st Winter Children of Asia International Sports Games!

Holding Games of this level, undoubtedly, contributes to development of winter sports, to involving young people and children in physical education, and to appreciation of a healthy lifestyle.

I am sure that these Winter Games will bring about new names and talents, the participants will remember the Games as a fantastic sports festival, and, of course, they will serve as a platform for establishing friendly international contacts.

I wish the participants to keep their passion for sports and to enjoy brilliant victories, and I wish the fans to experience positive emotions and vivid impressions.
