IF PH WINS HOSTING BID | We have 10 years to plan for 2030 Asian Games—Cayetano
December 5, 2019 , 09:09 PM

DECEMBER 5, 2019 — There is still one week left in the 30th Southeast Asian Games, but the Philippines is already looking a decade ahead, eyeing to host the bigger and more prestigious Asian Games in 2030.

House Speaker and Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) Chairman Alan Peter Cayetano says the country has ten years to plan should it win the hosting bid.

“‘Yun ang isang challenge sa ating bansa: Magkaroon ng long-term plans,” said Cayetano.

Cayetano added that the country should learn from this year’s hosting of the SEA Games, where preparations only started in earnest in the last two years.

“As you know, 2015 pa lang, alam na natin na tayo ‘yung magho-host ng SEA Games. Hindi tayo kumilos until 2017,” Cayetano pointed out.

The PHISGOC chairman says if the country wins the bid, preparations for the 2030 Asian Games will go through three presidents, but he has already drafted a proposal on the possible hosting to President Rodrigo Duterte.

At the Grand Hyatt Manila Hotel on Tuesday night, Cayetano was awarded by the Sports Industry Awards (SPIA) Asia for his contributions in sports.

During the awarding ceremony, SPIA Chief Executive Officer Eric Gottschalk recognized PHISGOC for its efforts in organizing what he described as “the best 30th SEA Games organized so far.”

It should be noted that neither Cayetano nor PHISGOC received any official award from the body for organizing “the best SEA Games.” (Niko Dacanay/JMF)
