Indonesia’s bid for 2032 Olympics: ‘No other place but Jakarta’

first_imgIndonesia’s National Olympic Committee (NOC) says the country has no city aside from Jakarta for its planned proposal to host the 2032 Olympics Games, ending recent speculation about possible plans to propose the country’s future capital in East Kalimantan as the host city.In a phone interview on Thursday night, NOC chief Raja Sapta Oktohari told The Jakarta Post that his party would always pick Jakarta as the strongest candidate to host the quadrennial event, adding that holding the Olympics in another place would violate the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) sustainability principle.“During my communication with [President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo], no other place was mentioned, only Jakarta. Anything else is mere speculation,” he said. The IOC sustainability strategy is one of the key elements besides youth and credibility in the organization’s Olympic Agenda 2020. Maximizing the use of existing venues is one of the main aspects of that strategy.The sustainability strategy leaves leeway for the construction of a new venue but with a note that it must be viable and have a “minimal environmental footprint”, the IOC document stated.This would be violated if Indonesia nominated a new place, which would force us to build new sporting venues for the 2032 Olympics’ bid, Okto said.Previously, Reuters reported that the Indonesian government was “evaluating” the 2032 Olympics’ bid plan with the inclusion of the new capital in East Kalimantan as the candidate city for the Summer Olympic Games.Indonesia is likely to face a tough challenge from Australia’s Brisbane, which has announced its candidacy for the 2032 Games.In February, the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for the new capital city, which will be built in the regencies of North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kartenagara, will kick off this July as the central government is currently working to accelerate the establishment of regulations and a master plan for the new capital.Topics :last_img read more

If I were him, though, I would drop everything and run here.” 1last_img read more
