Belarusian officials, however, do not lose heart: they are considering an opportunity of filing an application only from Belarus. They analyze infrastructure and the objects set to be built by 2015. When the package of documents is prepared, it will be sent to the FIBA office and the basketball officials will decide if our country will host the championship. Nothing endangers positive decision so far: having taken into account force mejeure circumstances and estimated the performed productive work , FIBA gave Belarus additional time to collect the information needed. The decision on the project is expected to be taken in the nearest weeks.
