The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today announced the positioning, principles and roadmap to the Paralympic Games to be held in the summer of 2021.

Following the unprecedented decision to postpone the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Tokyo 2020 has held several discussions with IOC, IPC, Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Government of Japan to prepare for next year's Games. An IOC and Tokyo 2020 joint steering committee announced the overall positioning, principles and roadmap to the Games on 10 June.

Tokyo 2020 and the IPC have since thoroughly reviewed them and updated the content of the positioning to reflect the unique values of the Paralympic Games. This updated version was presented to the IPC Governing Board on 7 July.

Tokyo 2020 will stay in close collaboration with all stakeholders while continuing to make every effort toward a successful delivery of the Games.
