For the opening speech of the match with a welcome speech, I specially received several Chinese lessons from a great professional. The Chinese side has always been distinguished by excellent organization and a friendly reception from our players. The best memory of our friendly matches has been preserved, and now there are a long way to go. One can see the rapid progress of chess players in India, where a whole generation of young and ambitious players has grown up. Uzbekistan will host the Olympic Games in 2026. Kazakhstan hosts the world championship match between Ian Nepomniachtchi and Ding Liren I follow the news about the FSR’s entry into the Asian Union from the press. When this happens, there are all the prerequisites for creating a professional chess league for both team championships and individual performances. At the same time, we must not forget about the legacy of European chess schools and tournaments, the traditions of which have been preserved for centuries. Besides Magnus Carlsen, the ten strongest players in Europe include Anish Giri, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Alireza Firouzja. It will be good news if our chess players continue to have the opportunity to participate in European tournaments after moving to Asian Chess.
