Hosting the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games in a festive yet frugal way will set a positive example while earning support for the joint bid of Beijing and Zhangjiakou to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, organizers said.

Despite concerns about excessive spending and potential inconvenience to the public, the organizing committee of the 2014 Nanjing Youth Olympic Games remains positive about the event's affect on the Winter Olympics bid.

"Whether the Nanjing Youth Olympics is successful will weigh a lot in the bidding process of the 2022 Winter Olympics," said Xiao Tian, vice-chairman of the Chinese Olympic Committee, at a news briefing on the preparations for the Youth Games on Thursday.
