The two parties are confident to cooperate through joint committees in the fields of training, scientific services, academic and technical consultations and through the integration of sports, research and training activities and the optimal use of scientific capabilities, infrastructure and all available resources to achieve common goals and provide distinguished sports services through the exchange of experiences and cross-fertilization of ideas.
