I am very pleased to welcome you to ASDAN’s ILMUNC China. It’s been an amazing experience preparing for this conference with ASDAN over the past few months and I can’t wait for all of you to be a part of it. We're sincerely inviting you to join 2023 ILMUNC China! Now, I’m very excited to introduce myself and welcome this amazing conference.
Your secretariat has spent countless hours making this the best conference possible, full of amazing committees, engaging events, all as part of a reimagined experience. We have prepared countless ideas and plans for your conference to make it as engaging as possible and a conference you remember. The committees are designed to encourage thoughtful and progressive debate about the future of diplomacy.
I never thought I would be still competing and putting on Model United Nations committees so far beyond high school, but I am so glad that I did. I hope we create an environment filled with creativity and learning for whatever ideas you put forward. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns.

WHAT is Model United Nations
Model United Nations (MUN) is an academic simulation of United Nations Conference. It`s also a civic education activity organized for young people. During the activity, young people act as diplomatic delegates of different countries or other political realities. As delegates, they participate in discussion on international hot topics and solve problems with others. During the process of problem-solving, they must comply with the rules of conference while stating their position. Besides, they will also strive for the best interests of their assigned country in the discussion. During this process, they communicate, debate, consult and lobby with other delegates. They also propose solutions by working together in writing a resolution and finally, everyone vote and select the best solution for this hot topic.
In MUN, young people have the opportunity to become familiar with the operation, the international diplomatic communication skills as well as the contemporary hot topic of the United Nations by simulating the experience of the real United Nations scene. Besides, they will also exchange ideas by discussing with other students and try to solve the trending issue in their own way.

Gather, learn and improve. Throughout the conference, delegates will not only improve their communication skills and subject knowledge, but also logical thinking. We keep track of this progress and let every delegate have a chance to understand their self progress by receiving a personal skills report at the end of the conference.
At ILMUNC, we seek to provide an unmatched level of substantive debate that will not only increase delegates’ knowledge of international affairs, but will help them develop skills that are useful beyond committee.
