The meeting also discussed the UAE leadership’s strong support for the advancement of sports, which has had a positive impact on the growth of the Olympic movement in the country and raised the global competitiveness of the nation’s athletes.

The meeting also touched on France’s preparations to host the Summer Olympic Games later this year. H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed extended his sincere wishes for the successful organisation of the 33rd Summer Olympic Games to be held from 26th July to 11th August, 2024, and the Paralympic Games, set to take place from 28th August to 8th September, in Paris.
