We discussed the possibility of the international earth science Olympiad

As a
result, we decided to give up holding this Olympiad in Japan.

This
plan is still tentative and finally make a judgement at the general
assembly of Japan Earth Science Olympiad Committee on June 12.

We plan
to have Japan Earth Science Olympiad every year, and try to dispatch
delegates to the International Earth Science Olympiad every year.

We also
plan to do our best to hold the International Earth Science Olympiad in
Japan near future.

Your
continuous cooperation would be highly appreciated.
