Together they will examine the 14 themes of the IOC’s candidature questionnaire, which includes topics such as vision, legacy and engagement, transport, accommodation, finance and sustainability.

“At a time where we are finalising our discussions around Olympic Agenda 2020, the upcoming visits of the Evaluation Commission will reflect some of the new orientations that we foresee for the bidding process. It is an exciting time for the Olympic Movement, and I rely on the Commission to actively contribute to the shaping of our future,” IOC President Thomas Bach added.
