The European Mahjong Association (EMA) sends congratulations on the World Mahjong Championship in Chengdu in November 2007! People from all over the world will enjoy this marvellous competition as another milestone in Mahjong history. Players and officials from different nations will meet each other for playing and discussing the future development of Mahjong cooperation in the world. Let me express our gratitude to the Organizing Committee of the World Mahjong Organization and the World Mahjong Contest Center for preparing this event that of course will be an unforgettable expericence for all participants.
More and more players discover the attraction of the fascinating Mahjong Competition Rules as the new standard of playing. These rules have the power to recreate Mahjong as a permanent and everlasting worldwide movement.
Mahjong is more than a game. Mahjong is culture, Mahjong is friendship, Mahjong is the vision of peace and international understanding. Let us carry out this idea of healthy, scientific and friendly Mahjong culture and Olympic spirit!
I wish all participants to have a sporting, fair and wonderful World Mahjong Championship 2007!
President of the European Mahjong Association (EMA)
