International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge arrived in Beijing Saturday afternoon, beginning a five-day inspection tour of the host city of the 2008 Olympic Games.

Flying to the Chinese capital directly from a visit to Tokyo, Japan, Rogge will first attend the 5th World Forum on Sport, Education and Culture, where he is expected to speak about the importance of educating young people through sport and about the challenge of how to increase sports participation by today's young people.

Rogge will subsequently attend the opening plenary session of the 7th IOC Coordination Commission meeting, which takes place Oct. 24-26.

This visit will also include a tour of some of the key Beijing venues, which will allow Rogge to see first hand the development of the Beijing Olympic Games project.
