Addressing the symposium, Prof Akhtaruzzaman said BNACWC, as a member of the OPCW, is working to ensure the peaceful uses of chemistry at all levels in Bangladesh. Such kinds of symposiums will play a vital role in preventing chemical accidents, misuses of chemicals and creating mass awareness in this regard, he added.

A total of 153 students from the country’s five universities took part in the competition. From the total posters, five were selected as the ‘best five’.
