Since its first establishment in 2012, PresMUN has managed to keep the trend for gathering the MUN devotees nationally and internationally. PresMUN as one of the best MUN Conferences in Indonesia has received eager anticipation from both National and International delegates with a total of more than 50 delegates including delegates from Bangladesh and Thailand.
“We are concerned about the heated conflicts that have captured the world attention such as terrorism, Eastern Ukraine conflict, Kashmir conflict, trade war, and conflicts between countries in the economy, security, and socio-cultural. This theme aims to increase awareness of the conflicts that exist in the international world and therefore we know the procedures for overcoming them,” said Fitra, one of the committees from the Communication Division of PresMUN 2019.
Further, the committees sincerely hope PresMUN 2019 will not only provide an opportunity for delegates to enhance and deepen their practical skills but also leave unforgettable memories through its social activities as well as its renowned hospitality.
