The International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach on September 10 welcomed in Lausanne, Switzerland, a delegation with members from all levels of government and the Olympic movement in Australia.
Chair of a cross-government Taskforce to explore the possibility of hosting the Olympic Games 2032, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk led the team that met with President Bach and IOC experts.
The IOC Member in Australia and President of the National Olympic Committee, John Coates, also joined the meetings.
The delegation heard presentations from the IOC on the organisation’s mission and role, and the positive impact of Olympic Agenda 2020’s reforms on the delivery and legacy of the Games.
Under the recently approved changes in the principles governing future Olympic Games elections, the IOC aims to establish a permanent, ongoing dialogue with cities, regions and countries wishing to explore hosting opportunities.
