The report's content is derived from the successful, productive and very cordial visit of the Evaluation Commission to Almaty in February 2015. The report gives a clear sign that Almaty's second bid for the Olympic Winter Games benefits greatly from its experience hosting multiple major winter sports events like the successful Asian Winter Games in 2011, Universiade 2017 or just recently the U23 FIS Nordic World Championships in 2015. Almaty's success hosting events proves that it is well prepared to host the Olympic Winter Games to the highest standards in 2022.
Mr Andrey Kryukov, Vice Chairman of Almaty 2022 said: "First of all we would like to thank the International Olympic Committee, the Evaluation Commission and IOC Member Alexander Zhukov and Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi again for the very productive visit to Almaty in February and the report they made based on this visit. The report clearly states that Almaty´s vision is fully embedded in the Olympic Agenda 2020 and the city's long-term sports development plan - a plan which started in 2011 with the hosting of the Asian Winter Games - is working. Almaty has already invested more than a billion US dollars in the development of winter sports venues and will have 80% of all the venues necessary for hosting the Winter Games finished by 2017."
