China's central and local governments in Beijing and Zhangjiakou have included Beijing 2022 in the National Strategy of Integrated and Coordinated Development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region (National Strategy), and the long-term regional development plans, thereby facilitating the bidding and preparation for the Olympic Winter Games, the improvement of urban ecological environments and the close integration of economic development and social advancement.

Moreover, Beijing stresses an economical Games. The Bid Committee has adhered to the principles of being scientific, meticulous, prudent and feasible in the budgeting for the Games. Out of the 12 competition and non-competition venues in Beijing, 11 are existing venues inherited from the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

"We are confident that we are on the right track to convince the IOC members that Beijing is the right choice for a successful 2022 Olympic Winter Games," Wang added.
