The champions, Mexico, were promoted to the Division II B for the 2017 tournament, and the last-placed nation (South Africa) were to be relegated to a qualification tournament for 2017,[2] instead an eight-team Division III tournament was decided on in September 2016. Israel participated in a World Junior tournament for the first time since 1997, while Bulgaria returned after withdrawing from the 2015 tournament.
