Study Launched For Joint Hiroshima, Nagasaki 2020 Bid

Japan Today reports a panel to study the feasibility of Hiroshima and Nagasaki co-hosting the 2020 Summer Olympic Games was launched Saturday.

Hiroshima Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba, chairman of the panel said, “we want to clarify our philosophy in November and address specific problems in December”.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has criticized a joint Olympic bid, so the panel plans to study the possibility of a joint bid and how to finance the event and will reach a conclusion by next spring on whether to make a joint bid, reports Japan Today.
