International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) President Richard Allcroft believes the organisation's mission to be a "world leader in Para sport" has not been hampered by the coronavirus pandemic.
Writing in his monthly message, Allcroft said the COVID-19 crisis "has allowed the IWRF to review what we do and how we go about it."
"It has not diminished my ambition and the collective belief of all involved in the IWRF in driving towards our vision," he said.
"We mean this in many ways and as the year unfolds, you will see the IWRF growing from strength to strength with several initiatives across the whole range of our activities including governance, education, anti-doping, disciplines, classification, rules and competitions."
Allcroft admitted he had been "hoping to start the year with a clear vision towards how we may be restarting international competition after a year of no wheelchair rugby."
"The situation is still serious in many parts of the world and I was saddened recently to hear that the UK had suffered 100,000 deaths from this non-discriminatory virus," he added.
"This unfortunately is not isolated and we are seeing high levels of infection globally."
The IWRF has not been able to hold any international events since the coronavirus pandemic struck.
