ZNA JAPAN does not state which koi club or who in China should take the initiative to hold the 10th Asia Cup Koi Show. As China has specific circumstances in holding a public event, ZNA understands that the Asia Cup Koi Show can be done in a different way from the cases in other Asian countries.

In addition, the ZNA directors at the meeting confirmed that the Asia Cup Koi Show had started by the following process.

The Asia Cup Koi Show was founded by the late Hiroji Sakai (Sakai Fish Farm) and Richard Tan (the former president of Koi Club Singapore) in 2007 by their concept to implement a koi show as big as Shinkokai's Combined Show and ZNA's International Show in Asia outside of Japan. In November 2007, Richard Tan and Alan Nementzik visited the ZNA show in Ojiya and met the Chairman Masao Kato and the Executive Director Hiroshi Masuda, and they agreed to the following terms.

The Asia Cup Koi Show judging is collaborated with judges of Shinkokai(AJNPA) and ZNA.

ZNA makes their best efforts to dispatch judges to the show.

The term of "ZNA" should not be appeared in the tile of the "Asia Cup Koi Show"
