Vancouver Hosts Fifth IOC Co-ordination Commission Meeting



The Coordination Commission, including International Paralympic Committee (IPC) representative Rita van Driel is organized by the IOC as the body supervising the preparations of the local Vancouver 2010 Organizing Committee (VANOC). The overall agenda included updates on key topics, such as venue construction, finance, sports media and marketing. It also featured a working group dedicated to review the progress made with regards to the Paralympic Games.

The discussions during this Paralympic working group focused on accommodation, media services and ceremonies. During meetings around the Coordination Commission the IPC also confirmed its agreement to VANOC's request to shift the date of the opening of the Paralympic Village from 5 March to 6 March while maintaining a Pre-Opening day on 5 March for certain individual groups.

Said Rita van Driel: "In general we are pleased with the preparations on the Paralympic side. We can see that VANOC's integrated planning works well and that there is a good understanding of Paralympic needs. We still have some concerns regarding the accommodation situation in the mountains which we need to further discuss with VANOC".

The next Coordination Commission meeting will be held in February 2008 during a cluster of Games related test events.
