Bangkok, Thailand, March 16, 2023 – FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graca has met key persons of the National Volleyball Federation of Indonesia (PBVSI) at the Indonesia Volleyball Development Center in Jakarta, discussing relavant matters which lead to the support to the governing body in Indonesia through the FIVB Volleyball Empowerment and Development Program.

Upon his arrival, Dr Ary, along with FIVB delegates including FIVB General Director Mr Fabio Azevedo, was warmly welcomed by AVC President Mrs Rita Subowo and PBVSI President Mr Imam Sudjarwo. AVC Secretary General Mr Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai from Thailand also joined the meeting, which was held in line with the FIVB’s visit to the Development Center, reiterating the importance of further enhancing development of the center and preparing for the FIVB’s support to PBVSI.

In his speech at the meeting, Dr Ary Graca recapped the FIVB’s innovative and dynamic strategic plan which continues to strive to support the development of National Federations and National Teams and stressed that he and his team visited Indonesia this time to specifically consider what they can do for PBVSI and also congratulated the association on their efforts in promoting sustainable growth of the Indonesia Volleyball Development Center.

“The Development Center in Indonesia did not hold activities for some times such as the coaches and the referees. So, it means a lot for volleyball family in Indonesia and this Development Center in particular. The PBVSI President is looking forward to working together with the support of FIVB to move it forward and now we have learned that there is also the Volleyball Development Center in Indonesia, not only in Thailand. And now we can help support our friends from Asia and those from across the world to be able to use facilities provided in this Development Center in Indonesia although it’s not big as it was before. At least, it can serve for training in the near future,” AVC President Mrs Subowo was quoted as saying in her further information on the Development Center.

After that, Mr Heyzer Harzono, himself PBVSI Vice President and Chairman of the AVC Development & Marketing Committee from Indonesia, reported on the Indonesia National Team Projects in their preparation for the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles and the 2032 Brisbane Games both in volleyball and beach volleyball, emphasizing on the budget plans in terms of intensive trainings and competitions for both disciplines.


Regarding the FIVB’s support to PBVSI, AVC Secretary General Mr Kiattipong informed that FIVB will provide the association with financial support of 20,000 US dollars per year aside from distribution of volleyball court flooring, volleyball materials and equipments for training and competitions.

In addition, Indonesia has also been given a chance to host a Volleyball Underage World Championship in the near future, while to support Indonesia with a well-qualified coach and expert for their men’s team is another crucial issue taken into consideration.
