Singapore 2010 Youth Games On Track

Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Vivian Balakrishnan said planning and preparations for the inaugural Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) are on track.

The Singapore 2010 Organising Committee has filled 11 of its 13 senior executive positions and the remaining positions should be filled soon, reports Channel News Asia.

Meanwhile several senior staff members of the organizing committee were in Beijing observing first hand the management of the Beijing Games. Balakrishnan said the Beijing experience would be invaluable to achieve the next critical milestone by the end of September – the completion of the foundation plan where all the key planning parameters for organizing the Youth Olympic Games would be confirmed in consultation with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
