China supports ASEAN Sports Zone to champion sports for all
The ceremony was attended by Deputy for Youth Development of the Indonesian Ministry of Youth and Sports Dr Raden Isnanta and representatives from relevant government agencies in Banten Province and Tangerang City.
The ASEAN Sports Zones initiative is supported by China through the ASEAN-China Cooperation Fund with technical expertise and equipment procurement by China’s Sport International Co. Ltd.
ASEAN Secretariat, in cooperation with China, is endeavoring to promote a healthy lifestyle and active aging while strengthening cooperation in sports through the establishment of ASEAN Sport Zones.
This initiative provides local communities with outdoor fitness equipment in ASEAN Member States, with Cambodia and Indonesia selected as pilot countries in light of their chairmanship in 2022 and 2023, respectively.
The ASEAN Sport Zones aspire to host community sports activities that celebrate healthy lifestyle and the spirit of commonality. It is envisioned that the next launch of the sports zones will coincide with significant occasions such as ASEAN Day and China National Fitness Day to exemplify harmonious collaboration and shared values among the communities in both ASEAN and China.
