After the Politburo agrees in principle, the People’s Committee of Ha Noi will closely coordinate with the MCST and relevant ministries, agencies and localities in devising a plan on organisation of SEA Games 31 and Para Games 11 in a thrifty, safe, effective and successful manner.

Hanoi must review its current infrastructure facilities and make a detailed plan on infrastructure development serving the events, and mobilise the participation of different economic sectors in these efforts, he said.

The PM asked the sports sector to proactively prepare human resources including athletes and coaches as well as other necessary conditions in order to gain the highest results at the events.

He praised the substantial determination of the culture, sports and tourism sector, as well as of Ha Noi and the relevant ministries and agencies to host SEA Games 31 and Para Games 11.

Hosting the games is both the responsibility and honour of Vietnam as a constructive member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), he said, adding that this is also a chance to promote the Vietnamese land and people. 

According to the MCST, SEA Games 31 is scheduled to last for about 17 days and Para Games 11, around 11 days, from October to December 2021. About 11,000 athletes and coaches are expected to participate in SEA Games 31, with some 2,100 to join Para Games 11.
