Vietnam has ranked among the top four candidates seeking the chance to host the 2019 Asian Games.

Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) Director General and Technical Director Husain Al-Musallam announced the names of the top four bidders on Feb. 7 at the OCA Media Committee meeting in Macau .

The United Arab Emirates (UAE), Indonesia and Chinese Taiwan are the other candidates vying for the opportunity to host the continent's biggest sport's event.

Vietnam successfully organised the 22nd SEA Games in 2003 and the third Asian Indoor Games in 2009.

In a recent interview, Hoang Vinh Giang, general secretary of the Vietnam Olympics Committee, said Vietnam submitted a 6,000 billion VND (300 million USD) budget for the event, which is only one-eighth of what China spent two years ago.

The General Assembly will select the winner at the Macau Galaxy on November 3. /.
