The 46th International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) 2014 will take place in Hanoi from July 20-29 with the participation of student delegations from 80 nations and territories.

The Prime Minister has recently approved the organisation of the event, according to the Government Portal.

Held annually since 1968, the IChO is one of the five contests, including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Information Technology, for international secondary students to show off their intellectual talents and make friends.

Vietnam has participated in the IChO since 1997. Last year, all the four students of the Vietnamese team won medals, including one gold and three silvers at the 45th International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), held in Russia from July 15-23.-VNA
