As for the agenda that we have achieved as the host of the 2023 SEA Games, it is the adoption of 39 sports that all member countries have no objection or misunderstanding of the sports that Cambodia has put in place. Even Cambodia's traditional sports such as bokator, Khmer martial arts and chess, no one questioned it. All of this means that Cambodia has been honored as the first host. "Under the leadership of HE Thong Khon, in this Board Meeting, we received congratulatory messages from all countries. They praised Cambodia for its well-organized and well-organized hospitality, which is the success of Cambodia. After the 32nd SEA Games 2023 in Cambodia is Thailand hosting the 33rd SEA Games, but after Thailand is still unclear who will host the SEA Games, We are all waiting for the results after the meeting in Vietnam.

HE Vath Chamroeun added that the second meeting of the Southeast Asian Sports Council is scheduled to be held in Phnom Penh in June 2022, as Vietnam will host the SEA Games in May 2022. By the end of the Vietnam Summit, we will be the sole President of the Southeast Asian Games Council, as Vietnam will hand over the flag to the host Cambodia on 23 May 2022 at the official closing ceremony. "We will work with autonomy and independence in leadership from June 2022 onwards. We will hold the last meeting because there are still some sports that are reserved sports, so the sports that we reserve will be finalized when Cambodia chairs the council in June 2022.
