With the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, Europe has taken positive and effective measures to reduce the impact of the epidemic on society. Europe's outdoor industry has also been hit hard. As industry representative, The European Outdoor Industry Association (EOG) has been working hard for the industry. Due to the shortage of epidemic prevention equipment, General Secretary of EOG recently addressed a letter to the Secretariat of Outdoor Industry Committee (OIC) of China Sporting Goods Federation, seeking for assistance.

After receiving EOG's letter, OIC has paid great attention to it. Steve Huang, Chairman of the committee, urged the Secretariat to prepare for the materials and confirm with the logistics.
Under the tight situation of China's personal prevention equipment and strict export restrictions, Mr. Jun Li, General Secretary of OIC, with assistance of member company representatives such as Mr. Mao Huanjun, Mr. Guo Haitao and Mr. Lv Qiding, found solution for the logistic problems, and delivered the materials to destination on 27th
May, 2020. Along with the PPE products was a letter from OIC to express friendship and spirit of co-operation between the two organizations just as Heinrich Heine said in his poem.

Steve said, OIC has been and will always be working together with OIG and other overseas counterparts on industry survey, exhibition, marketing, environment protection and technology to promote development of the industry. In face of the big challenge, we should tide over the difficulties hand in hand.
Mr. Jun Li, General Secretary said that the donation is only a start for the co-operation to fight with crisis. We are facing impact on industry in addition to health and safety threads. The two organizations should work together in the new norm for promoting the industry. OIC is willing to share our experience on returning to work and reopen the business.
