China CAMC Engineering landed a contract worth USD289 million to build the main competition and service facilities for the 2025 Asian Youth Games in Uzbekistan.

‘Yicai Global’ stated that Uzbekistan’s Olympic City project includes the games’ main stadium, competition venues, dormitory buildings, and other related facilities, the Beijing-based engineering contractor announced recently.

China-based construction engineering company – China CAMC Engineering Company Limited (CAMC) – a subsidiary of China National Machinery Industry Corporation, is a construction company that offers engineering, procurement and construction services. The company designs and constructs shipyard, turnkey project in pulp plant, agricultural equipment industrial park, and rehabilitation and rural roads.

The Asian Youth Games, also known as AYG, is a multisport event held every four years among athletes from all over Asia. The Games have been organized by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). The Games are described as the second largest multisport event after the Asian Games. The creation of the Asian Youth Games is part of Singapore’s bid to host the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics. It was intended to show Singapore’s organizational capabilities and infrastructure. In its history, two nations have hosted the Asian Youth Games. Forty-five nations have participated in the Games.

The last Games were held in Nanjing, China from August 16th to August 24th, 2013, and the next games will be held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in 2025.

The City of Tashkent will host the 2025 Asian Youth Games, held once every four years, the Olympic Council of Asia informed in early May this year.

The investment and construction of the Olympic City project in Uzbekistan will help consolidate CAMCE’s expertise in civil construction, such as comprehensive large-scale sports venues, and expand the firm’s overseas market share, CAMCE noted.

‘Yicai Global’ further stated that the company did not disclose any further details, such as the construction schedule, but added that it still needs to further discuss with the project owner on the commercial contract terms, financing mechanisms and other specifics.
