Here are the targets I set for the years between 2017 and 2020

Perform duties

Once elected as the vice president of the World Sailing, I will faithfully perform my duties. Based on the principle of sound moral standards and equality, I will actively safeguard the World Sailing family's interest, and provide the best service to all members with solidarity, harmony, cooperation, inclusiveness and mutual respect.

Develop side by side

I will do my utmost to promote THE EMERGING NATIONS PROGRAMME. To achieve regional common development and headway, I will push forward the training program including coaches, players, technical officials as well as equipment and financial assistance program. I, along with all continents especially the Asia-pacific, Africa and South America, will build a more smooth communication channel for common development.

Focus on Youth

I will vigorously advance the Global Youth Development Program, and build up more convenient and frugal platform for training and competition. Especially, researches should be furthered on the pattern of Youth World and Youth Olympic Games so as to ignite the passion of all competitors.

Advocate the establishment of " Project Development Fund"

I will positively carry forward the Global Navigation Development Fund by seeking more cooperation partners and provide financial and equipment assistance to regions and players desperately in need.

Expand "Voice of Sailing"

Based on such platforms as "MNA's Forum"?"Secretary General Forum"?"Women Forum", I will conduct more healthy dialogues, listen to the voices from member nations, regional representatives, cooperation partners, media, producers, and amateurs, and advocate the concept of solidarity, cooperation and mutual support.

Work on the Development of More WS Members

Give efficient support to the nations and regions that did not have their own sailing organization. Help them to set up the sailing program. Encourage them to promote sailing sport and join the World Sailing family. Expand the scale of World Sailing through the increase of MNAs.

Promote brand marketing

I will provide service to expand the brand influence of World Sailing, especially in the Olympic Games, World Cup and relevant international sailing events. More related researches are needed.
