NOT SURE WHETHER IT was because it's the last of his 5-year term as CPPCC (China People's Political Consultative Conference) National Committee member or not, Yao Ming was amongst 14 selected CPPCC members chosen to speak in front of the national conference yesterday at the third plenary meeting of the fifth session of the 12th CPPCC National Committee in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing !!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

He gave a speech on 体育强国不仅是金牌, 体育产业不仅是金钱
i.e. It's not just about Gold Medal for a strong sports nation, and sports industry is not just about $$$$$ !!!

He stressed a strong sporting nation is not just about winning gold medals, but also developing mass fitness, sports industry and sports culture comprehensively, and that the sound operation of professional sports leagues is at the center of the quest.

Some of the main points in his speech is reported as below:


Quote:

Yao Ming: Sports industry
not only about money


2017-03-10

Xinhua English

BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhua)
-- Chinese sports icon Yao Ming said Tuesday that the rapidly growing Chinese sports industry needed much more than investment.

The remarks were made at the ongoing session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top advisory body.

"Investment isn't everything in sports industry," said Yao, the newly elected president of the Chinese Basketball Association.

According to Yao, the sports market in China is far from perfection, and the current task is to raise a new generation of stable and loyal consumers.

"The interest in sports should be developed from childhood," said Yao. "Our children need to manage at least one sport in school, which will bring the country more and more sports fans who can understand and participate in sports activities all through their lives."


Yao expects more local sports activities to emerge in near future. The campus sports events, amateur events and professional events can meet the needs of various groups of people.

"Our professional sports isn't strong enough," said Yao.

"We should encourage our clubs to grow faster, which can lift our professional leagues to a higher level."


Yao suggests a more efficient usage of the existent sports venues, sports fields in school and other public spaces.

"The venues are built for the local people and we should encourage them to make full use of the facilities," said Yao.

Yao Ming was in Hong Kong on May 4.

He was there for 2 functions:


First, he hosted a press conference for his Yao Foundation. The 2017 Yao Foundation Charity Game will be held in Hong Kong this year from July 28 ~ 30. This marked the 10th anniversary of this Charity Game series, and it will also be part of the Hong Kong SAR 20th Anniversary events. Like previous years, it will feature a Yao Foundation Invitational Team (comprised of Nike-endorsed NBA players) versus the China National Team. And as usual, there will be other charity related activities surrounding the Charity Game on the 30th: golf, community charity visits, forums, charity gala etc.

While he was there, he also attended FIBA Mid-Term Congress in his capacity as Chairman for CBA. There he met a couple of old friends in NBA: Vlade Divac and Andrei Kirilenko, who are now also senior executives in the basketball association of their respective countries (Serbia and Russia).


And during this meeting, FIBA announced both Yao and Kirilenko will join the management team of FIBA starting this October.
