Taipei, June 2 (CNA) The Chinese-Taipei Badminton Association (CTBA) has won the right to host the 2011 World Junior Badminton Championships in Taiwan, CTBA President Kuo Jeng-liang announced Tuesday.

It will be Taiwan's first opportunity to host an international badminton championship and this event is expected to boost the country's international visibility, Kuo said at a news conference.

The association won the bid at the annual general meeting of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) in late May, according to Kuo.

He also said that CTBA Vice President Wu Chun-yen became the first Taiwanese ever to be elected to the BWF Board of Directors, gaining 207 of the 231 valid votes cast during the meeting.

The international badminton event will attract the participation of a large number of athletes from 30-40 countries, Kuo said, adding that he will lobby for other international badminton competitions and BWF board meetings to be held in Taiwan.

Wu also exhorted Taiwan's young badminton players to practice hard in order to perform outstandingly when the country hosts the international event.
