He said the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the delay of many sports events in the region and the world, including SEA Games 31.

Being held in Hanoi and 11 cities and provinces, the Games serves as a sports arena for the most outstanding athletes in the region, he said, noting that the Organising Committee hopes that 8,000 officials, coaches and athletes from 11 Southeast Asian countries, along with sports officials from across the world, will also have wonderful experience about Vietnam.
