The Government of Japan is ready to hold the Olympic and Paralympic events next year despite the Tokyo Olympic budget increasing. The Olympics were to be held from 24 July to 9 August this year. But due to Corona, it has been postponed for a year. Now it will be from 23 July to 8 August next year.
The extra expenditure of 20 thousand crores has increased due to the postponement of Olympic one year. The last budget for the Games was given by the Organizing Committee in December 2019 which was $ 16.9 billion (about 1.25 lakh crore). But now Tokyo 2020 is also facing a shortage of funds, which was mentioned in the budget last year.
“We are ready to prove that humanity has won the epidemic by organizing the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games next year,” Prime Minister of Japan Yoshohida Suga said in the United Nations General Assembly.
CEO Toshiro Muto has also said that he is ready for the event
Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto has previously said whether the vaccine came or not. But he is fully prepared to hold the Tokyo Olympics next year. He said, ‘Tokyo’s budget can be reduced. We have additional sponsors and insurance. At the same time, two-thirds of the additional budget will be made by the government and one-third part by the Organizing Committee.
More than 11 thousand players will participate
11000 players from 206 countries are expected to participate in the next year’s Games. Apart from this, 4400 Paralympians and more than 10,000 officers, judges, VIPs, media and broadcasters will be gathered.
