He also appreciated the attendance of this record of National Federation that reflects the great interest of the African countries to join the big efforts form the confederation to develop.
FIVB President Wei said in his speech during the opening ceremony that he visited Sudan 30 years ago and he can find now the great difference and the big progress. “It is another Sudan now and the presence of this big number of NFs is another proof of African Solidarity,” Said Mr Wei.
“The FIVB Development fund we decided few years ago was reflected positively in Africa in all items of development and progress and thus we need all the NFs in Africa to work hard to use this fund positively and also to work hard to attract the local authorities to the Volleyball field because they will be the main tool support to the sport in each country. I stress also that the democratic election in Africa to be done here in Sudan is the key of regular democracy in the whole volleyball environment in Africa.” He added.
