Welcome Letter

Dear Fellow Delegates and Honored Guests,

On behalf of the Secretariat Team, we are absolutely delighted to invite all of you to the fourth iteration of IVMUN, which is to be held from June 29 to July 01 in Hanoi.

In the context of perpetual societal upheavals, Model United Nations has always manifested itself as one of the most innovative and life-changing platforms for youths to express their opinions about whatever socio-political matters they are passionate about. Through MUN conferences, youths are empowered to discuss world affairs, propose resolutions, and negotiate with one another in the position of world leaders. It is also through MUN conferences that youths can acquire insights into matters of grave international concern, hone their diplomacy and collaboration skills, and interact with people of diverse perspectives—the influence of Model United Nations is such that its participants can prepare themselves immensely for the challenges of the future.

Since its inception, IVMUN has carried the heavy yet honorable responsibility of inspiring the young generation to find a voice in and beyond the committee room. Thriving on its past three years of maturation, IVMUN 2018 returns with brand-new distinctive features that are designed to enhance the experience of the delegates. The Conference will revolve around 08 committees, consisting of 02 General Assembly committees, 02 Specialized Agencies, 01 Regional Body, and 03 Crisis Councils. IVMUN 2018 will reintroduce the news outlet agency specialized in delivering the most refreshing updates within the conference to all delegates. Together with this novel elements are well-fashioned and coherent topics, informative training guides and sessions, as well as a talented board of Chairs and Secretariats all dedicated to offering a top-notch service.

Priding ourselves on organizing one of the rising international conferences in Vietnam, we are wholeheartedly invested in making your experience well-rounded. At the gist of MUN is the intersection of thoughts—an unrelenting commitment to diversity of cultures, ideologies, and experiences that culminate in the ideation of success. IVMUN 2018 will feature informative Advisory Panel sessions and multitudinous cross-committee bonding activities to help everyone achieve their most satisfactory experience.

We would also like to make a tribute to all of the secretariats, advisors, and sponsors for having assisted us in this endeavour. Had it not been for the synergy and consummation with which we have worked together, IVMUN would not have come thus far. The realization of each goal of this conference is due in part to your wondrous contribution.

Whether you are a newcomer to MUNs or have become a MUN veteran, we sincerely hope that you can have a memorable experience with IVMUN 2018 this summer. Please do not hesitate to reach us should you have any enquiries. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”—let IVMUN be that one step in your pursuit and join us to embark on the quest to “change the world, one resolution at a time.”

Sincerely yours,

Manh-Linh Le and Duc-Kien Vu

Secretary-General and Deputy Secretary-General
