Original title: Establishment of publicity committee for Sapporo bid for 2030 Winter Olympics

In order to bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics, the Japanese city of Sapporo recently established a national organization called the “Propaganda Committee”, hoping to strengthen the Olympic propaganda and win more support from Japanese nationals.

According to Kyodo News, there are more than 30 members of the “Propaganda Committee”, including Olympic and Paralympic athletes and representatives from the political and economic circles. The chairman is Keigang Iwata, chairman of the Sapporo Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The committee will introduce the meaning of hosting the Olympic Games to the citizens, and the relevant content will also be included in the bid plan submitted to the International Olympic Committee.

Sapporo Mayor Katsuhiro Akimoto expressed at the inaugural meeting that he hoped that Sapporo could attract talents and investment from all over the world by hosting the Winter Olympics and contribute to the overall development of Japan. Yasuhiro Yamashita, chairman of the Japanese Olympic Committee, also said that the establishment of the “Propaganda Committee” is to let the people know that hosting the Olympic Games is of great significance.

The latest survey shows that the proportion of citizens who support Sapporo to host the 2030 Winter Olympics is 52.2%, and the proportion who opposes it is 38.2%. The International Olympic Committee will decide on the right to host the Winter Olympics in 2023. Sapporo, which hosted the Winter Olympics in 1972, is competing against Salt Lake City in the United States, Vancouver in Canada and the Pyrenees in Spain’s Aragon and Catalonia regions.
