French expertise for the 2030 Winter Olympics
Following the announcement of the International Olympic Committee which indicated that it had started discussions with France’s candidacy for the holding of the 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in the French Alps, Xavier Gallot-Lavallée comments:
“This decision rewards the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region & South Region – Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in several respects: the know-how of the French mountains through its infrastructure and its industry but also the experience in the organization of the biggest sporting events in the world, such as the Critérium de la Première Neige which takes place every year in Val d’Isère and which MND has supported for more than ten years now. »
