SEA Games 31 set to take place throughout May

VOV.VN - Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has given the go-ahead for the hosting of the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Vietnam between May 12 and May 23, 2022.

During the meeting to discuss preparation plans relating to the SEA Games, Deputy PM Dam requested that the Hanoi People's Committee co-ordinate with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MOCST) and relevant departments and agencies to develop a plan. This should primarily focus on organizing both the opening and closing ceremonies of the event in line with the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

The Deputy PM also requested that the MOCST fully co-operate with the Ministry of Health, Hanoi, and the municipal People's Committee in order to put in place a series of anti COVID-19 measures aimed at ensuring safety throughout the duration of the SEA Games 31.

Most notably, due to a range of complicated developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, the country will not be hosting the 11th ASEAN Para Games (ASEAN Para Games 11).

Moving forward, the SEA Games 31 is set to feature a total of 40 sports along with 520 events. The largest sporting event in Southeast Asia is scheduled to take place in Hanoi and 11 other northern localities.
