The Coordination Commission of the International Olympic Committee helping guide the PyeongChang 2018 Organizing Committee said recent successes and the team effort shown by the POCOG suggested Games' preparation was on a good schedule.
"We've once again seen good progress from PyeongChang 2018 and an excellent team effort from the Organizing Committee, all levels of government, and the Korean Olympic Committee," Commission Chairman Gunilla Lindberg said in a release.
"Delivering the Olympic Games can be achieved successfully only by working as a single unit and our Korean colleagues have shown that unity once again on this visit."
Lindberg said the commission was impressed by the collaboration that would "ensure that these Games will be a success."
Commission members pointed to the launch of PyeongChang 2018's logo, designed "to capture the culture of Korea and to reinforce PyeongChang's vision of welcoming the world to its Games," and the finalization of the venue master plan as important milestones for the POCOG.
"With 4 1/2 years remaining until the Olympic flame arrives in the country, POCOG is well-placed to ensure that the athletes have the best possible fields of play upon which to compete," a release from the commission stated.
The XXIII Winter Olympic Games are scheduled for Feb. 9-25, 2018, in PyeongChang -- in northeastern South Korea near the demilitarized zone.
