The 3rd Winter Asian Games were held from February 4 to 11, 1996 in Harbin, China.<ref>World of Chinese Stamps and Philatelic Items</ref> North Korea was originally scheduled to host the games, but was not able to honour its commitment. <ref>3rd Winter Asian Games - Olympic Council of Asia's Official Website</ref> The International Olympic Committee's decision to hold the Winter and Summer Olympic Games two years apart affected the schedule of the 3rd edition of the Winter Asiad, as it had to be moved to 1996 in order to avoid being held at the same time as the 1994 Winter Olympics in Norway. Several NOCs, including Kazakhstan and Thailand first participated in the games, expanding the number to 17. <ref>AWAGOC News</ref>
