Online Meeting & 5th Annual Congress of ASIA

To share the latest information regarding the pandemic, as well as policy responses and institutional guidelines for high performance training, the HKSI participated in the Association of Sports Institutes in Asia (ASIA) online meeting on 11 June 2020. Nineteen representatives of 11 member organisations, including Hong Kong, mainland China, Cambodia, Chinese Taipei, India, Japan, Qatar, Singapore and Thailand, took part in the meeting.

Due to the pandemic, the 5th Annual Congress of ASIA was held virtually for the first time from 22 to 26 February 2021. It bore the theme “New Norm in High Performance Sport with COVID-19 and the Future of Sport in Asia”. With over 2,100 online participants, the Congress highlighted the role of high performance sports in society for the post-coronavirus world. Speakers provided insights based on their experiences and shared best practices from across Asia to overcome challenges specific to the development of sports in Asian countries.

ASIA is the first association bringing together the region’s high performance training centres, and was founded in collaboration with the HKSI, the Singapore Sport Institute, the Japan Sport Council and the Aspire Academy in Qatar in 2015. Currently ASIA has 16 member institutes from 13 different countries and regions.
