Today, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has launched its New Foundation Plan following the unanimous adoption of the plan by the AIBA Executive Committee.
The New Foundation Plan was developed to lay the foundation for a stronger future for AIBA and Olympic Boxing while at the same time implementing short-term corrective measures. The New Foundation Plan is a plan will allow the new AIBA leadership, due to be elected in November 2018, a fresh start with a smoothly running organisation.
The New Foundation Plan consists of five pillars: governance, events, rules, development, and communication. In addition to the activities already accomplished by AIBA, the plan outlines key priorities and action items that are necessary to implement and consider in the lead up to a new AIBA strategy. The New Foundation Plan was developed with the input of the wider boxing community and experts, through surveys and meetings.
Gafur Rahimov, Interim President of AIBA, said “I am very proud of the work AIBA has done on all levels to be able to launch the New Foundation Plan. We are confident that the New Foundation Plan provides us with a strong basis to build our future and will allow AIBA to continue to develop our sport on all levels and in all continents. As the New Foundation Plan shows, we have made incredible progress since the Extraordinary Congress in January of this year. Over the coming months, our focus lies on implementing the remainder of the plan and to get ready for the next step for AIBA.”
