The Asian Paralympic Committee announced
that the Chef de Mission Seminar (in-person) for the Hangzhou Asian Para
Games will be held from July 2 to 6, 2023.

various functional areas, delegates from the NPCs will complete their
pre-Delegation Registration Meetings and tour the Games village and competition
A virtual CDM seminar was held last
year before the Games was postponed due to the Pandemic.
This meeting in Hangzhou follows the
recent visit by a 16-member APC delegation for the 4th Co-ordination Committee
meeting at the end of March.
APC President Majid Rashed said:
"The countdown is well underway for the Hangzhou 2022 Games, and we are
happy to announce the Chef de Mission Seminar in person in July. It will be an
important event, not just for the NPCs who are keen to visit the Games venues
and the Games village, but also for the organisers APC and HAPGOC (Hangzhou
2022 organising committee) to meet all the teams' officials and update them
with the preparations for the upcoming Games.
"In our last visit to Hangzhou
for the Co-Com meeting, the APC team saw the outstanding venues with amazing
facilities and infrastructure and were impressed by the hospitality shown. We
are thankful to HAPGOC, the governments of Zhejiang Province and Hangzhou for
making us feel exceptionally welcome. We are sure that the NPCs will feel the
same and are confident that the CDM will be a big success."
The 4th Asian
Para Games in Hangzhou will be held from October 22 to 28, 2023 with 22 sports
to be competed by over 3000 para-athletes.
