This is very beneficial for us and we value the experience that the Panam Sports team shares with us in these aspects”, she commented.
PRESIDENT OF PANAM SPORTS: "THE PAN AMERICAN VILLAGE IS VERY ADVANCED"
The leader of the Pan American Sports Organization, Neven Ilic, stated that "in many aspects, Santiago 2023 is advancing in good conditions, (and although) I think the organization should pay more attention to the issue of infrastructure, the Pan American Village is very advanced. Regarding the other venues, there are some that have already been delivered and others in progress".
"We still have time to get to the Games in good condition," he concluded.
The next Executive Committee will take place prior to the General Assembly to be held in Santiago in Chile on August 31 and September 1 this year.
