“Thank you very much for gathering today at this busy time of the year,” Mr. Tachiki said as he opened the meeting. “I have realized recently that the FIVB recognizes the World Championship as such a high status and glorious competition which cannot be compared to any other. I am already looking forward to the finals on November 14 and we want to make this competition even more successful than the last two editions held in Japan.”

“On behalf of TBS, I appreciate all of you attending the first Organizing Committee for the FIVB Women’s Volleyball World Championship Japan 2010,” Mr. Inoue added. “Now we only have six months to go until the beginning of the event. We have established a special project group within our company, and recently, our representative Mr. Ishikawa had a valuable chance to report the progress at the FIVB Board meeting in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Following the good examples of the World Championships in 1998 and 2006, we want to organize and broadcast the event successfully again this time. We want to prepare well in the next six months.”

“The World Championship is not only the biggest competition but also it will become a marker for the London 2012 Olympics Games,” Mr. Nakano, who is also Vice-President of the Organizing Committee, said. “Last time, we hosted both the men’s and women’s events, but this time, we will only host the women’s event, so we can put twice the energy into it. Together with TBS, we want provide the best condition for the participating teams to play.”
