On 1 February 2019, President Xi arrived at the Shougang Park in Shijingshan District, the seat of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, to learn about the preparation for the Games and the planning and construction of the venues and infrastructure.

Xi stressed the need to stay committed to hosting the Games in a green, inclusive, open and clean manner, and to complete all preparation tasks with high standards.

The venue construction must meet the Olympic standards and be completed on time, Xi said.

Stressing that the features of technology, intelligence, greenness and frugality should be highlighted, Xi said that during venue construction advanced technological approaches should be applied, energy-saving and environmental friendly requirements should be strictly enforced, the environment and cultural relics should be well protected, and Chinese styles should be on full display.

Xi visited the office building of the Beijing Organizing Committee, meeting with some of the staff and volunteers there.

Noting that Beijing will become the world's only host of both the Summer and Winter Olympics, he stressed that China must fulfill the solemn commitments it made to the world.

"Hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics is an important support to the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region," Xi said, adding that Hebei Province must develop together with Beijing.

During his visit to the national winter sports training center, Xi stressed promoting sportsmanship with Chinese characteristics, boosting coordinated development of mass sports, competitive sports and the sports industry, and speeding up building China into a country strong on sports.
