International Olympic Committee (IOC) officials will seek to address a series of challenges when a week of key Pyeongchang 2018 Coordination Commission and Executive Board meetings begins here tomorrow.
It will mark the first major set of IOC meetings of the year and comes at a time of huge challenges - both in South Korea and elsewhere in the Olympic world.
Tomorrow will mark the first of a three day inspection visit with just 11 months to go until the start of the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games.

Legacy plans at two outstanding venues will also be assessed along with transport and accommodation plans and overlay work at venues.
Inspectors are expected to be pleased, however, with the rate of construction process following a series of largely successful test events over the winter.
Site visits and meetings will be given extra profile by the presence of IOC President Thomas Bach.

SportAccord President Patrick Baumann has been appointed to replace him.
Discussions could take place on changes to the bidding process, including on a potential plan to award both the 2024 and 2028 Games at the IOC Session in Lima in September.
Anti-doping reforms is another area of interest, as well as the possible suspension of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya following a failure to meet an IOC-approved roadmap for reforms.
It was originally hoped that the IOC would also be able to make final decisions on sanctioning Russia at this meeting after evidence of institutional doping was published in the McLaren Report late last year.
This will not now happen, however, due to the two IOC Commission - run by two Swiss officials, Samuel Schmid and Denis Oswald - having not yet finished their work.
