SOFIA chaussures homme air max 97 , Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Nenad Lalovic, the President of the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA), promised Wednesday to fight for the position of wrestling in Olympics and will make all the efforts to form one of the best federations.

In a meeting with the Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev air max 97 homme pas cher , Lalovic reiterated that wrestling with its old history and popularity in many countries should be remained in the Olympics.
""People are very concerned with that problem, because wrestling is practically and officially the most practiced sport. These T- shirts are all over the world, not only here. You can see them in the States, you can see them in Sweden, in Russia air max 97 rouge bordeaux , in Africa,"" Lalovic told Xinhua.
""We do not blame IOC (International Olympic Committee) for the decision. We are the one who has to be blamed. We have left our sport a little bit behind the other sports. In the sense that we didn't modernize enough, we didn't follow the requirements of the IOC,"" he said.

Lalovic assured that FILA would continue to make wrestling as a core sport air max 97 triple black pas cher , a spectacular sport no matter whether wrestling would succeed to remain in the Olympics. ""We will fight to have one of the best organized federations in the world. We are developing the world wrestling plan, everybody is included.""

The President Plevneliev was one of the first leaders of the world to write his support for the sport to Jacques Rogge, president of the IOC.
""Bulgaria is one of the top 10 countries with the history of wrestling and will continue its efforts to support the Olympic status of this old sport,"" said Plevneliev.
ACCRA, May 17 (Xinhua) -- The maiden edition of the China Trade Week opened in Ghana's capital on Wednesday.
The event is designed to create a platform for Ghanaian businesses and entrepreneurs to engage Chinese manufacturers of diverse backgrounds here in Ghana.
The two-day exhibition assembled around 50 exhibitors representing Chinese companies drawn from various industries who are here to explore partnership opportunities with Ghanaian traders.
China and Ghana have enjoyed fruitful cooperation in the economic and trade fields since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries 57 years ago.
Ghana is an important development partner of China in Africa.
Last year nike air max 97 noir homme , China-Ghana trade volume registered 5.976 billion U.S. dollars, making Ghana the seventh largest trading partner in Africa.
The Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, Sun Baohong, called on both sides to entrench the concept of win-win cooperation for common development and work together to promote trade and investment facilitation and oppose protectionism.
"I am very confident that as long as we display sincerity and solidarity, and conduct cooperation from a long term and strategic perspective air max 97 ultra noir , the economic and trade cooperation between China and Ghana will be promoted a notch higher and create a more brilliant chapter," she said.
The Chief Executive of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center, Yoofi Grant, described China's Belt and Road Initiative, an economic and diplomatic program that could transform global trade air max 97 silver bullet pas cher , as a very significant and bold move.
He said the plan of the new government was to bring Chinese investors to set up in Ghana and also to open up the regional market for them.
"Indeed, like I said, Ghana is positioning as the hub for West Africa. If China wants to access the free zones of West Africa and the intended continental free trade area of Africa, Ghana is the place that we think you should start," said Grant.
Both exhibitors and visitors see the trade exhibition as an opportunity to explore business links.
Nash air max 97 argent femme , an importer of building and construction materials to Ghana, said he wanted to see how this China trade week would develop and get his company better sourcing from China.
Another visitor, Favour, said the trade exhibition would help Ghanaians learn more about trading with the Chinese.
