The VSA has established an administrative centre as well as sub-committees and organising committees for each sport in the two events, Director General Vuong Bich Thang told a conference held in Hanoi on July 16 to review the sector’s performance in the first half of this year and outline tasks for the second half.

It has also completed the games’ charters and competition rules for each sport and plans for holding meetings of the Southeast Asian Games Federation (SEAGF), he noted.
