Lausanne, Switzerland: As part of its ‘New Foundation Plan’; whose main objective is to build a solid base for the future development of the organisation, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has invited its main stakeholders to voice their opinion on the future development of the organisation and the sport of Olympic Boxing.

Stakeholders to be surveyed include the AIBA Executive Committee members, the AIBA Commissions members, the AIBA staff and all AIBA’s 203 National Federations.

The survey results will serve as the basis for the ‘New Foundation Plan’ whose recommendations will be discussed during the AIBA Executive Committee meeting in July 2018.

Gafur Rahimov, AIBA Interim President said: “As we entered a new era after the Extraordinary Congress, aiming to improve in many areas, we have a vision of a more prosperous AIBA that will benefit to all our stakeholders.

It is therefore vital to involve our main stakeholders in the reshaping process of our organisation to make sure it reflects their opinions as accurately as possible.”

Tom Virgets, Executive Director, AIBA told: “Involving all of AIBA’s main stakeholders is a big step towards more transparency and a better governance of our organisation.

We believe that, by doing so, we will not only get valuable knowledge for the successful development of Olympic Boxing worldwide but we will also send the signal that we are making considerable positive changes in the way AIBA functions.”

The invitation to fill in the online questionnaire has been sent out to AIBA stakeholders on Thursday, 12th April 2018. The online survey will close on Sunday, 29th April 2018 and will be followed by a round of individual interviews and focus groups.
