Beijing 2022 congratulates Hashimoto Seiko on her ap-pointment as Tokyo 2020 President

The Beijing 2022 Organising Committee congratulates Hashimoto Seiko on her appointment as the President of the To-kyo 2020 Organising Committee. We believe that Hashimoto Seiko will be able to unite all parties to deal with the challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and lead the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee to deliver successful Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

The sudden outbreak of the pandemic has brought great challenges to the preparation for the Tokyo Olympics and the Beijing Winter Olympics. During this period, with the strong support of the International Olympic Committee, the Beijing Organising Committee and the Tokyo Organising Committee have established extensive and close communications, and conducted constructive and effective exchanges and cooperation. We hope that the two organising committees in China and Japan fur-ther strengthen their collaboration to overcome the challenges and work unremittingly to ensure the successful delivery of the Tokyo Olympics and the Beijing Winter Olympics, making new contribution to the development of the international Olympic movement.
