Vietnam’s preparation for the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31) in 2021 was reported at the event. Accordingly, SEA Games 31 is scheduled to take place from November 21 to December 2, 2021, in Ha Noi and some neighboring localities such as Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, Ha Na, Nam Dinh, Ninh Binh, Hoa Binh, Vinh Phuc and Bac Giang, with the engagement of about 10,000 athletes.

Delegates approved that SEA Games 32 will be held in Cambodia and SEA Games 33 in Thailand.

On July 21, three separate meetings of the committees for sports and law; health; and females and sports were held.

The first one discussed the estimated number of sports and events, while the second focused on medical and anti-doping activities, and the third revolved around the role of women in sports across Southeast Asia.

SEA Games 30 held in the Philippines last year is considered one of the most successful SEA Games for Vietnam as athletes showed impressive progress in key events and even broke SEA Games records by far, including the cases of swimmers Huy Hoang and Hung Nguyen, and runner Nguyen Thi Oanh.
