Committee of the 18th Asian Games (INASGOC) has provided opportunity for foreign citizens living in Indonesia to be volunteer in the regional sport event next year, top official of the committee said here on Monday.

Chairman of the INASGOG Erick Thohir disclosed that a total of 30 percent of the 13,000 volunteers of the event has been allocated for the foreign citizens in Indonesia.

"We give opportunity to the foreign nationals living here to be volunteers. Their quota is 30 percent," he said in Wisma Serbaguna of Senayan.

Mastering foreign languages other than the languages of Asian nations would be an added value for the volunteers, he said.

The chairman admitted that the total number of volunteers to be accepted could be more than 13,000 people.

Over 11,000 athletes and officials from 45 nations and region would take part in the Asian Games next year in Indonesia, according to the committee.

The regional sport event would be held in the country's capital and provincial capital of South Sumatra from August 18 to September 2, it said.
