China is dedicated to establishing a fully all-year-round sports culture and developing its huge winter sports market potential by encouraging public participation.

In this way, Beijing 2022 will also help promote healthy lifestyle across China. Beijing 2022 will directly contribute to creating approximately 600,000 additional jobs within the plan to develop sport, culture and tourism in the region, and provide a significant boost to the development of China's winter sports industry.

All Beijing 2022 snow venues will remain a legacy for the Olympic Movement worldwide and will continue to serve as both domestic and international competition and training venues, while the on-going development of leisure skiing tourism in the area is also expected to be significantly boosted by the Games.

"The Beijing 2022 Bid Committee will follow the guidance provided by the IOC Evaluation Commission to further strengthen our plan for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and we guarantee that all commitments that were made in the Candidature File and during the past week of the visit will be fully met," said Guo Jinlong, Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Beijing Municipal Committee.

"All the Bid plans are embedded in our region's long-term development plans and China's stable economy means that all investments will be guaranteed. We are looking for a win-win benefit for the Olympic Movement and China."

The IOC Evaluation Commission will on June 1 release a comprehensive assessment report following their visits to Beijing and Almaty, earlier this year. The IOC will announce the host city on July 31 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
