President Xi visited the International Olympic Committee (IOC) headquarters in Lausanne and met with IOC President Thomas Bach during his Swiss visit in January, 17 months after Beijing won the bid to host 2022 Winter Olympics.

"China will keep its promise and take resolute steps to host a great Winter Olympics. And we will finish all the prep work sooner rather than later. I will visit Zhangjiakou (cohost city of 2022 Games) as soon as I get back to China and see the ski resort there," Xi told Bach.

Bach believed that Beijing will deliver an amazing game under Xi's strong leadership.
