BACKGROUND -

Tokyo will host the Games of the XXXII Olympiad from 25 July - 9 August 2020, and the Paralympic Games from 25 August - 6 September 2020.

According to Jacques Rogge, former President of the International Olympic Committee ("IOC"), Tokyo's Bid invited IOC's members to "discover tomorrow" "by delivering a well-organised and safe Games that will reinforce the Olympic values while demonstrating the benefits of sport to a new generation". Contributing factors to Tokyo's successful bid included Japan's operational excellence, ability to deliver, comparatively modest development plans and the rejuvenation of Japan's economy through Abenomics.

DLA Piper's Tokyo 2020 Olympics Updates will cover various hot topics in relation to the Games, including new developments and legal issues. Part 1 covered infrastructure opportunities in relation to the Games.

This Part 2 provides an overview of the procurement process and what Japan is likely to expect from tenderers from commercial, compliance and cultural perspectives.
