India wins bid to host 36th International Geological Conference
Brisbane (Australia), Aug.9 (ANI): India has won the bid to host the 36th International Geological Conference.
The International Geological Congress is held every four years under the aegis of the International Union of Geological Science (IUGS), and is an Olympic of the international geo-science fraternity.
In all, 121 countries are members of the IUGS.
The decision to give India hosting rights for the 36th International Geological Conference, which will take place in New Delhi in 2020, was taken at the 34th International Geological Congress (IGC) being held in Brisbane, Australia from August 5 to August 10, 2012.
Dr. Vishwapati Trivedi, Secretary, Ministry of Mines, led the Indian delegation to the Brisbane conference.
Dr. Trivedi presented India's bid to host the 2020 IGC before the IUGS Council, and, 128 votes were cast in favour of India. Fifty-one votes were cast in favour of Canada, which had offered Vancouver as the venue of IGC 2020.
The 36th IGC will be held in India after 56 years. Delhi played host to an IGC event in 1964.
After India secured the bid for hosting the 36th IGC, Dr. Trivedi assured the IUGS Council that IGC 2020 in India would be an unprecedented Congress in the history of the IGC. (ANI)
