Political advisors in East China's Zhejiang province, where the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 will be held in September, voiced their expectations for the upcoming international sporting event during the fifth session of the 12th Zhejiang Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference in Hangzhou, Zhejiang on Jan 16-20.

Shi Zhiyong, 29, a weightlifter who claimed gold in the men's 73-kilogram weightlifting at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, is the youngest member of the Zhejiang CPPCC committee. He said, "I will spare no effort to compete at the Asian Games. I hope all athletes can demonstrate good sportsmanship and raise people's interest in sports activities."

Shi also called on people to show openness, inclusiveness, and hospitality to the world through the Games.

Some other CPPCC members agreed that it is important to showcase traditional Chinese culture and the country's latest development to the world when hosting the Asian Games.

"We should seize upon the opportunities brought about by the Asian Games and develop some high-quality Chinese products to stimulate consumption," said Tu Hongyan, a member of the Zhejiang CPPCC committee and chairwoman of Wensli Group, a Hangzhou-based silk and textile product maker.
