According to the Vietnam Sports Administration, the slogan is expected to send to governments and people in the region a strong message of solidarity to build a powerful ASEAN Community and further promote its role in the international arena.

Earlier, the regional sport events’ official logo and mascot have been introduced, with the logo symbolising a flying bird and a V-shaped hand and the mascot based on the saola – a rare animal listed in Vietnam’s Red Book of Endangered Species.

The national steering committee for the organisation of SEA Games  agreed at the latest meeting to set the date for the regional sport event on May 12-23, 2022.

The games have been postponed due to complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic. They were originally scheduled to take place from November 21 to December 2 last year.

Vietnam, which hosts SEA Games for the second time after 18 years, will hold 40 sports covering 526 events and welcome about 10,000 athletes.

The capital city of Hanoi will be the main venue for the tournament alongside other localities such as Quang Ninh, Phu Tho and Bac Ninh.
