ACP General Secretary Bartlomiej Macieja announced that Indian Grandmaster Parimarjan Negi became member of the ACP Board.
“India, led by the world champion Viswanathan Anand, has recently become one of the most impressively growing chess countries. We are proud to announce that one of India’s best player, 20-year old Parimarjan Negi, has joined the ACP Board to share his experience and ideas.”
“His active involvement will definitely help the ACP to promote and develop chess worldwide, as well as to better understand and even more efficiently solve problems that chess professionals encounter in Asia.
Parimarjan Negi has replaced Evgeny Najer, who had had to step down due to professional and private reasons.
