The founding ceremony was attended by representatives of a) African chemical societies such as the Chemical Societies of Ethiopia, Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia and African Association of Pure and Applied Chemistry, b) IUPAC, c) RSC, d) members of the Executive Committee of the Chemical Society of Ethiopia (CSE), e) members of the Organizing Committee of the 22nd Annual Congress of CSE and the founding of FASC, f) former presidents of CSE, heads of Chemistry Departments in Ethiopian universities, sponsors of the FASC-founding meetings and invited guests.
