Deputy Secretary General
Honourable chairs, delegates, advisors, and guests,
My name is Samuel Oh, a senior at Gyeonggi Suwon International School, and it is with great excitement to welcome you to the second iteration of GSISMUN as the Deputy Secretary General.
Years of lax business practices and a shortage of medical supplies have left many unprepared for the chaos that has been 2020. With issues multiplying tenfold amidst a global pandemic, many nations will likely see internal turmoil for the foreseeable future. So as we approach a new age of thinkers and global citizens, it is evident that the issues of our day require new and innovative ideas to replace the age-old solutions of financial aid, among others.
The current state of events amalgamate perfectly into the theme for GSISMUN II: "Chaos | Complacency | Creativity." We hope to utilise the masterful innovations of our day -- Artificial Intelligence, Zero-emission vehicles, Nanotechnology -- to address the plethora of issues ranging from high unemployment to climate change. But rather than deferring to the oft-used solutions of our past, it is my hope that this conference can inspire delegates to think creatively and experiment with new ideas.
See you soon!
Deputy Secretary General of GSISMUN I
