"I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all Asian Athletics Federations for their support from the first moment I was elected to lead AAA and I truly believe together we will bring Asia to the centre stage of the athletics world.

“As I have already demonstrated, during my tenure as President of Asia Athletics Association, our planfor Asia will be achieved by creating and delivering a new athletics concept. We need to emphasise on the grass roots programmes, to educate and engage youngsters on the sportsmanlike principles, to teach them the virtues of fair play and to fight against doping. I wish to ensure each and every one that I will do what it takes to further enhance the Asian Athletics Association operations".
