主席的信─國際議題：非法毒品買賣 Illegal Drug Trafficking
Dear distinguished delegates,
Welcome to National Youth Summit V! It is a great honor to serve as your Chair for the upcoming conference. My name is Alice Liou. I am a sophomore student at National Tsing Hua University and currently majoring in material science and engineering. I would like to briefly introduce myself and share my experience with you.
My career in Model United Nations started in my third year of high school. It was my first time participating in MUN conference when I joined the National Youth Summit III with my friends. This experience has encouraged me to discover more of myself and the world since then. When I entered college, I joined Tsing Hua World Model United Nations Team without hesitation, and began my one-year training process. Among all my experiences, participating in World Model United Nations in Brussel, Belgium, is the one that changed me most dramatically. It not only broadened my horizon and deepened my thought, but also let me comprehend the essence of youth international participation and global vision.
Devoting myself to the field of sustainable development has long been my aspiration. Having a great passion for environment protection and education, my partners and I founded Tsing Hua Green Action and held the first Tsing Hua ECO Month this year. It will be such a precious opportunity to chair the committee of ECOSOC and share what I learned these years in the field of sustainable development with you. Illicit drug trading is not only an issue concerning human health, but also global economy and social security problems. The illegitimate economy system behind the scenes, and its unexpected impact on education and poverty is hindering the process of reaching the Millennium Development Goals before 2015. At the very moment, it is our duty to dig out the root cause of illicit drug trading and boost cooperation between countries.
Before the conference, please remember the “3P” principle in order to become a successful delegate: clearly understand your country’s “position”, do solid research to obtain exhaustive “preparation”, and have full “participation” in the conference. Be confident of yourself and dare to step out your comfort zone, and you will do a lot better than you might imagine. I look forward to seeing all of you soon!
