A team led by Huang Heng, vice chairman of the Shantou municipal committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), inspected venues for the Asian Youth Games that are under construction or renovation across the city on the morning of Nov. 13.

The venues being inspected included the municipal people's stadium, the municipal swimming and diving center, as well as the main venue for the Games, which will be turned into the east campus of Shantou University after the event concludes.

Shantou plans to build and renovate a total of 22 projects to cater to the needs of hosting the Asian Youth Games. Among these projects, 14 are currently under construction, two are about to begin construction while another six are being planned.

According to the inspection team, construction crews for the projects should strengthen project management to ensure they are completed on time and at a high standard so as to welcome the upcoming Asian Youth Games.
