Sukom Ninety Eight Berhad is the organizing committee for the Kuala Lumpur 98 - XVI Commonwealth Games and was incorporated on 14 July 1992 before Malaysia's
successful bid on July 21, 1992, at Barcelona, Spain to host the XVI Commonwealth Games.
The name 'Sukom' is derived from the union of two words
in Malaysia's national language. They are 'Sukan' and 'Komanwel'.
'Sukan' means sports while 'Komanwel' is just a localized
spelling of Commonwealth, when translated into Bahasa Malaysia.
YBhg Gen (R) Tan Sri Hashim Mohd Ali
Sukom Ninety Eight Berhad will ensure that the Kuala Lumpur
98 - XVI Commonwealth Games will achieve excellence in operation
and financial viability. It will implement an educational and
developmental programme to equip those concerned with the skills
necessary for the efficient organization of the Games.
The Commonwealth Games is an international multi-sports
championship attracting the best Commonwealth athletes from
six regions of the world. It will provide opportunities for
human development, cross-cultural understanding, good sportsmanship,
attainment of personal achievement, and fostering close and friendly
ties between all nations of the Commonwealth.
For Malaysia, Sukom looks on 1998 as an important step towards
meeting the aspirations of Vision 2020.
