The Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee and the Chinese Olympic Committee co-organized the 23rd Sport Exchange Symposium on 30th March 2021,in which the bilateral Committee reviewed the activities held last year and confirmed the 10 activities expected to be held in this year. The symposium was co-chaired by President Lin Hong-Dow (林鴻道) of the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee and President Gou Zhong-Wen(苟仲文) of the Chinese Olympic Committee. The symposium which was originally scheduled to be held at the end of 2019, was delayed to this year 2021 due to tight schedule of the two Committees and the impact of the epidemic in 2020. In order to avoid the symposium interrupted by restrictions of the epidemic for too long, this year’s conference was conducted by online video.
The establishment of the exchange visits and sports exchanges between the cross-strait Olympic Committees initiated in 1997. With the goal of the symposium to plan the important sports exchanges between the two sides in the coming year and to take turns as host and guest respectively in every year, it has now entered into 23rd years. President Lin Hong-Dow of Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee said that the cross-strait Olympic exchange visits and sports exchanges for more than 20 years and have established sound interaction and friendship. No matter how the external situation changes, the Cross-Strait Olympic Committee will always carry out sports exchanges on the foundation of mutual trust, benefit and reciprocity to achieve the significant result of cross-strait exchanges in all sport spheres. For example, the Chinese Olympic Committee fed back to our request to include baseball in the official competition of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which has enriched the visibility of the Hangzhou Asian Games and also met the aspirations of Taiwan’s fans. It proves obvisiouly the mutually beneficial achievements of sports exchanges between the two Committees.
President Lin wishes all international competitions can be revived after the epidemic slows down, so as the exchanges of cross-strait Olympic Committee in the coaching, player exchanges, sports information and experience sharing can be able to reinstate as they have been done in the past. With the Tokyo Olympic Games around the corner, President Lin also wishes the athletes of the two sides can have excellent performance at the Tokyo Olympic Games. And he looks forward to improving the level of skill for coaches and athletes of both sides through the interaction of top professionals between the Committees in the future.
