Secretary Du welcomed the guests. He said that in recent years, the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and the People’s Government of Hunan Province have attached great importance to the development of sports. Hunan has formed a strong atmosphere in both competitive sports and mass sports. Sports is an important way to improve the people's health and an important platform to showcase the national cultural soft power. We will study and implement General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important expositions on sports work; accelerate the pace of building Hunan into a strong and healthy sports powerhouse; make up for the shortcomings of sports infrastructure construction; develop competitive sports; carry out comprehensive national fitness program; and speed up the integration of the sports industry development, to effectively meet the people’s growing needs for a better life. He expected the national sports administration to continue to care and support Hunan in the construction of sports facilities, the bidding of sports events, and the training of sports talents, so as to promote the high-quality development of mass sports, competitive sports and the sports industry, and provide a strong spiritual force for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Director Gou remarked that Hunan has a solid foundation for mass sports, and its general fitness work is at the forefront of the country. It also has multiple experiences and advantages of hosting large-scale sports events. The General Administration of Sport of China will give Hunan strong support in the development of national fitness, the cultivation of competitive sports talents, and the bidding of sports events, and jointly make greater contributions to the building of a sports power.

During his stay in Hunan, Director Gou and his entourage went to Changsha, Shaoshan, and Shaoyang to inspect the development of mass sports and campus sports in Hunan, and the training of provincial gymnastics and rock climbing teams. They learned about the current situation of sports stadium construction and industrial development in Hunan, and attended the 2020 National Women's Weightlifting Championship and the Tokyo Olympic Games simulation held in Shaoyang.
