HAGOC plans to recruit about 52,000 volunteers from around the world to serve in Zhejiang's Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wenzhou, Huzhou, Shaoxing and Jinhua, providing 13 kinds of voluntary services in concierge and language needs, audience requirements, media operation and logistic support and transportation.

Husain Al-Musallam, director general of the Olympic Council of Asia, offered his congratulations on the launch of the global volunteer recruitment to the organizers via a letter shown at the ceremony.

"Volunteers are the backbone and a source of vital support for the success of any Asian Games. They are an integral part of the team that is preparing for the upcoming event in Hangzhou. Volunteer services also inspire the younger generation to be a part of the Olympic movement and to do so enthusiastically," said Musallam, who encouraged people to participate in the voluntary work of Hangzhou 2022.

Echoing Musallam, Liu Xin, mayor of Hangzhou, said that volunteers are a beautiful name card to show the international civilized image of the host city to the world. He believed that Hangzhou will become more beautiful through the participation of the volunteers.

The organizing committee released its volunteering slogan and promotional video and appointed four volunteer image ambassadors in a bid to call up more volunteer resources for the Games.

Application for volunteers will be open until October 31, 2021. Applicants can sign up via the Games' official website, WeChat account or "SMART HANGZHOU 2022", a mini-program on the Alipay app.
