Therefore, the establishment of SEA games 31 and Para games 11 organizing sub-committees is an urgent work. They need to be assigned responsibilities and fulfill their tasks on schedule,” Mr. Dung said at the meeting that took place on March 18.

“Additionally, the communication  dissemination about these games should also be promoted, in order to rally the response of the people of Hanoi as well as the whole country,” he added.

He also emphasized that, the Organizing Committee needs to take effective infection prevention and control measures against the Covid-19 pandemic as well as consult experts, scientists and relevant units to work out the best plans for the opening and closing ceremony of SEA Games 31 and Para games 11.
