(HBO) – Bui Van Tinh, member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Hoa Binh provincial Party Committee, had a working session with the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on the development of high performance sports in the locality.


Despite poor infrastructure and shortage of coaches and funding, high performance sports have developed in Hoa Binh province over the past years. From 2010 to 2016, 24 athletes were awarded with the "master” title and 23 sportsmen were promoted to level 1. Some athletes were summoned for national teams and won certain achievements at domestic and international tourneys.

 However, high performance sports in Hoa Binh are just in the initial stage of development and have only focused on some individual sports such as cycling, boxing and weightlifting. The province hasn’t been famous for any sports while the growth of team sports like football and volleyball remains modest.


Bui Van Tinh, member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Hoa Binh provincial Party Committee, speaks at the working session.

 Concluding the working session, Bui Van Tinh, member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Hoa Binh provincial Party Committee, stressed some focal tasks for the time ahead. He told the Party delegation at the provincial People’s Committee to prepare a report on the five-year implementation of the Politburo’s Resolution 08-NQ/TW, dated December 1, 2011, on enhancing the Party’s leadership over and boosting the development of physical training and sports until 2020 so that the standing board of the provincial Party Committee will issue a conclusion on the continuation of the resolution implementation.

 He also requested the building of a plan on local high performance sports development until 2020, with a vision to 2030, along with implementation measures. Relevant agencies must clarify potential and encourage team sports like volleyball, basketball and table tennis while developing a football team of Hoa Binh province. Meanwhile, the Department of Education and Training needs to design a separate plan on high performance sports development.

 The Party Committee Secretary also agreed on the need to upgrade infrastructure and increase enrolments at the high school for gifted students in physical training and sports so as to train high performance athletes. 

It is necessary to invest in a northwest sports centre covering 20 hectares and include the construction of a sports centre on the right bank of Da River in urban planning, he said, adding that a plan must be devised soon to upgrade the stadium of Hoa Binh city.

 He also asked provincial officials to consider cooperation with Hanoiin training high performance athletes and review mechanisms and policies on allowances and rewards for high performance sports athletes and coaches. It is necessary to learn from other localities’ experience in mobilising funding resources for physical training and sports, especially high performance sports. Specific mechanisms are also needed to draw big table tennis, volleyball and football teams to have training and matches in Hoa Binh, thus promoting the local physical training and sports movement.
