Jakarta (ANTARA News) – President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was scheduled to officially open the Asian Beach Games (ABG) I, an Asian beach sports commpetition in Nusa Dua of Bali, on October 18, 2008.

A release received from the Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI) said here on Sunday, the plan was conveyed by Chairman of ABG I Organizing Committee Rita Subowo when at a meeting with Bali Governor I Made Mangku Pastika in Sanur, Bali, on Sunday.

“The president has received us twice and the latest was during a cabinet meeting. The president is scheduled to open the event, while the vice president will close it on October 26,” Ritas said.

With 17 sports events being competed in the event, at least 45 countries with around 3000 athletes have confirmed their participation.

The sports events also include beach football, beach volley ball, jetskying and takraw.

“We have also obtained assurance about the presence of British and Qatary royal families and a number of sports ministers and the Beijing Olympic Committee chairman as well as General Chairman of the international Olympic Committee Jaques Rogge during ceremony,” Rita said.

However security posed a priority during ABG I, especially that it coincides with the first Bali bombing anniversary.

In the meantime, Bali Governor Made Pangkupastika said he would coordinate the security with all relevant agencies in the province.(*)
