We are delighted to have been awarded the right to host the 2022 Olympic Winter Games. We appreciate the trust from the International Olympic Committee, the guidance from the International Federations, the continuous attention of the media at home and abroad, and the great support from all the Chinese people, compatriots from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, overseas Chinese, as well as international friends.

We would also like to take this opportunity to pay sincere tribute to our opponent city Almaty. We respect and admire you for your persistent efforts towards the development of the Olympic Movement.

As an Olympic city that has hosted the Games of the Olympiad and will embrace the Olympic Winter Games, Beijing will fully deliver its commitments. With “pure ice and snow”, we invite our friends from all over the world to a “joyful rendezvous” at the foot of the Great Wall, upon the traditional Chinese Spring Festival of 2022.

We fervently look forward to meeting you in 2022. Welcome to Beijing!
