“So again, dear National Federations, thank you for your unwavering commitment to volleyball, thank you for your support. It is my great honour to serve as your President. It is the strong, united spirit of the global Volleyball Family that inspires me to work harder and harder, to make volleyball stronger, to make you stronger, and to keep supporting and empowering you,” said FIVB President Dr Ary S.
