"This event should be an energy for all of us to support the organization of the Asian Games, I hope that the community will be involved in volunteering, social consolidation and in the economic activities related to the Asian Games," said Menpora.

The President initiated the countdown ceremony by releasing the arrows to the target board in the form of a light emiting diode that enlivens all light and multimedia.
