FIVB President opens World Congress Workshop in presence of 39 African countries

20 September 2012

Anaheim, USA, September 18, 2012 – The FIVB President Jizhong Wei opened the FIVB Congress Workshop at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, USA on Tuesday by welcome speech where he evaluated the great importance of having this seminar for the second time after the Congress in Rome 2010 for the National Federations Category I and II.


 He started his message by encouraging the participants to continue their excellent communication with the FIVB and their respective confederations.


“Today’s seminar is a kind of exchange of view, dialogue,” President Wei said. “We didn’t invite any external experts to give you a lesson; we invited a lot of national federations to give you their experiences, how to run a national federation, how the national federations cooperate inside a zonal association etc.


“After the last congress seminar, a lot of federations became active. Not only listened but put key points into action. A perfect example of this was the beach volleyball Continental Cup where more than 150 federations participated. I remember Mauritius qualified for the Games. This is a positive result of our seminar.


“I sincerely hope after today’s seminar, all the national federations become more active with participation and organisation. We will work together to make FIVB stronger and stronger.


The total number of participants in the seminar is 157 participants from 126 countries including 39 African countries. There are a total of 144 category 1 and 11 federations affiliated to the FIVB.
