Distinguished Delegates, Observers, and Esteemed Guests,
On behalf of the Secretariat, we are truly honored to welcome you to the fifth iteration of the International Vietnam Model United Nations Conference (IVMUN), held in Hanoi, Vietnam from July 1 to July 3, 2019.
Our generation is currently witnessing a world of unprecedented change and development, at the core of which lies the inherent need for awareness, versatility, and innovation. Considering this context, Model United Nations has long been performing its role as one of the platforms to cultivate and strengthen the aforementioned qualities in today’s youths. This is achieved through a constructive process of researching, discussing, and drafting solutions to the world’s most pressing issues of the past, present, and future. Model United Nations’ values also extend to the social realm by fostering meaningful relationships among individuals of diverse backgrounds and beliefs.
Celebrating its fifth year in operation, IVMUN strives to uphold its long-standing ideals of creating a premium experience for all participants, and in doing so, facilitating their intellectual and personal development. This year, we are proud to introduce eight committees that showcase our commitment to both tradition and innovation, with two General Assemblies, three Specialized Agencies, one International Forum, and two Crisis Committees. Our news outlet will also be featured to promote interconnectivity among committees.
Furthermore, the Advisory Panel, Game Night and Cultural Exchange activities will all make an appearance in IVMUN 2019 to create an enjoyable, collaborative environment in and outside the committee room. This, we believe, constitutes an integral component to the uniqueness that characterizes IVMUN in the local Model United Nations scene.
In this undertaking, we would like to acknowledge and honor the restless dedication of our Secretariat, Advisors and Sponsors. The intimate relationships we have forged is the foundation of the achievements IVMUN has made since its inception.
On a final note, we would like to thank you–prospective Delegates and Observers–for your interest in IVMUN 2019. We sincerely hope that you will embark upon this journey with us, to experience, to learn, and to “change the world, one resolution at a time.”
