Chinese sports officials promised to organize the 16th Asian Games as a world-class sports event in Guangzhou in 2010.

To this end, China will further expand its co-operation with the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) and all the OCA members over the next few years.

China's Minister of Sports Liu Peng delivered the remarks in his speech at the opening ceremony of the 24th General Assembly of OCA here yesterday.

As a member of OCA, China would also actively participate in all the sports events organized by OCA and contribute to the development of Asian sports, according to Liu who is also chairman of Chinese Olympic Committee.

Meanwhile China will also try its utmost to organize the 2007 Asian Winter Games to be held in Changchun of China's Jilin Province, as well as a series of international sports events in the coming years.

Liu's remarks were echoed by Guangdong Governor Huang Huahua, who promised to increase investment for construction of Guangzhou's sports facilities and further improve the province's infrastructural facilities for a better Asian Games.

In July of 2004 Guangzhou was awarded the right to host the 2010 Asian Games.

H.H. Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, president of OCA, said he believed Guangzhou had the ability to hold a world standard Games.

In addition to meeting Chinese sports officials and local government officials, Sabah who arrived in Guangzhou on Wednesday, has also visited local sports fields, gyms and related facilities in the past two days.

He had high praise for the sports facilities Guangzhou has constructed.

Zhang Guangning, mayor of Guangzhou, also gave a briefing on the preparation work for the 2010 Asian Games at yesterday's OCA general assembly.
