The Chengdu 2021 Summer World University Games Organising Committee provided an update to the International University Sports Federation (FISU) through a video conference meeting.
Chengdu Mayor Luo Qiang, FISU secretary general Eric Saintrond, and University Sports Federation of China deputy chairman Xue Yanqing were all in attendance.
It was reported that construction of major venues is still in progress, despite the outbreak of coronavirus in China.
A video showcasing construction was presented to the meeting.
"The 2021 Chengdu World University Games will be a major international multi-sport event to be held in China," Xue said.
"The Chinese State Government is also closely involved due to the scale of the event, which will be so soon after the pandemic.
"So we have confidence that everything will proceed smoothly."
China is set to host the Summer University Games 10 years on from the last time it held the event, in Shenzhen.
It will be the third time in 20 years that China is the host after the 21st edition was staged in Beijing in 2001.
"Under the current situation of the pandemic, Chengdu has a huge responsibility for hosting the World University Games," said Luo.
"Under the strong leadership of the Chinese state Government and Sichuan provincial Government, Chengdu will resolve all difficulties calmly by deploying effective measures to ensure a successful event."
More than 10,000 athletes are expected to be competing at Chengdu 2021 across 18 sport disciplines, including rowing, shooting and wushu.
The event has changed dates twice, with competition now scheduled for August 18 to 29 2021.
