With the 1,000-day countdown celebration comes a ne

ew stage of preparation for the Games,” said Chen Jining, mayor of Beijin

g and executive president of the 2022 Winter Olympics Organizing Committee. “We will end

eavor to deliver a fantastic, extraordinary and excellent Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.”

The 1,000-day countdown — launched near the iconic Bird’s Nest and the

Water Cube, both 2008 venues — underlined Beijing’s focus on sustainability in prepa

ring a second time for an Olympic extravaganza by reusing existing resources built for the Summer Games.

auer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for Internat

ional Peace, said it “makes sense to continue the talks because the alternative would be a drastic signal to markets”.
