Guangzhou wins Asiad bid
Latest Updated by 2004-07-02 08:59:47

GUANGZHOU won the bid to host the 2010 Asian Games. The news was announced at Doha on Thursday.

Chinese State Councilor Chen Zhili, on behalf of the State Council, sent a telegram to congratulate the Chinese Asian Games' bidding delegation for its successful bid for the hosting right of 2010 Asian Games.

Guangdong Governor Huang Huahua was in the capital of Qatar, Doha, Thursday for the expected announcement.

Mr. Huang's delegation, which also includes State Sports General Administration Director Yuan Weimin, addressed the Olympic Council of Asia on Guangzhou's blueprint for the Games.

Guangzhou was the only candidate after the withdrawal of the other contenders, including Malaysia, South Korea and Jordan.

The city celebrated the announcement Thursday evening with a fireworks display on the Pearl River.

Guangzhou is now expected to apply for Central Government's approval for a series of large-scale projects. The city would spend about 220 billion yuan (US$26.5 billion) in the run-up to the 2010 event to improve infrastructure, build an athletes'  village, a new railway station, as well as completing the second phase of the new Baiyun International Airport, earlier reports said.

Guangdong has more than 50 sports sites that met Asian Games standards, while facilities such as Shenzhen's cycling track and Dongguan's swimming complex could also be used, earlier reports said.
