【Japan】Japan Sports Agency Commissioned Project Workshop for enhancing participation of Asian female para-athletes: A collaboration programme of the IPC, APC, JPC and JSC
A workshop was held for Paralympic Committees in the Asian and Middle East regions which did not send female athletes to the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. The purpose of the workshop was to enhance participation of female para-athletes in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games and other international events.
The JSC collaborated with the IPC, APC and JPC in holding the workshop with lectures and group discussions on the influence of female athletes and para-athletes on society, methods and issues related to discovering and developing talent, as well as entry qualifications for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games. We prepared a working plan for each country to achieve their goals and exchanged opinions. The APC will play a major role in following up on the activities of the respective countries.
