After winning, she said that Tokyo will strengthen cooperation with the International Olympic Committee, and earnestly promote relevant work on the basis of summarizing the epidemic situation of various countries and listening to the opinions of competitive groups of various countries, so as to promote the holding of the Tokyo Olympic Games.
