Chefs de Mission Seminar and 5th Co-Comm for Indonesia 2018 Asian Para Games heralded a success

By : APC Media
Date : April 17, 2018

With the Indonesia 2018 Asian Para Games just under 6 months away, two crucial meetings took place last week in Jakarta. In the first, delegates from NPCs across Asia, alongside the Asian Paralympic Committee (APC) gathered for the Chefs de Mission Seminar which took place on 1th and 12th. This was then followed by the 5th Co-ordination Commission meeting on 13th and 14th April.

During the two days of the Chefs de Mission seminar, delegates heard updates from the various functional areas of the organising committee, INAPGOC, and visited the sport venues and the Athlete Village. During the Co-Comm meeting INAPGOC provided further updates to the APC Executive staff on all aspects of Games delivery including IT, Broadcast, Accreditation, Transportation, Media and PR and Ceremonies.

Throughout the four days, senior officials from both the Indonesian Government and the City of Jakarta attended to underline the support that the Asian Para Games is receiving. Secretary for the Minister for Youth and Sports, Gatot S Dewa Broto opened the Chefs de Mission Seminar and Sandiaga Uno, the Deputy Governor of Jakarta opened the Co-Comm meeting. In addition. The APC President, Mr Majid Rashed together with the INAPGOC Chairman Raja Sapta Oktohari met with the Vice President of Indonesia His Excellency Jusuf Kalla. During this meeting, the Vice President stated that because the Asian Para Games will take place one month after the Asian Games, there is not much additional investment needed in terms of facilities and he urged close collaboration between INASGOC (the organising committee for the Asian Games) and INPAGOC.

Reflecting on the four days, APC President Rashed commented: 

We have seen great progress in all areas since our last visit and wish to thank the Government of Indonesia, the City of Jakarta and all our colleagues at INAPGOC for the hard work and energy that they are putting in to deliver the Asian Para Games. We know that the city and the country is fully committed to delivering a successful Games and share our vision that this event should send a strong message to the wider world about what disabled people are capable of. Led by their Chairman Mr Oktohari, INAPGOC are embracing the opportunity to make real strides in the areas of accessibility and we have been particularly impressed with the adaptions in the Athlete Village to make 1000 accessible apartments, the innovative thinking in transportation and within the volunteer programme where they are committing that 5% of the volunteers will have an impairment. It is through actions like these that the Asian Para Games will leave a real legacy of inclusion for the people of Indonesia. 

The Indonesia 2018 Asian Para Games will run from 6th – 13th October. Approximately 3000 athletes from an expected 43 Nations will compete in 18 sports. The event will act as an important stepping stone for athletes on the road to Tokyo 2020.
