Two student delegations of HKBU recently took part in three Model United Nations (MUN) Conferences held in Rome, New York and City University of Hong Kong. With their brilliant performance in the conferences, the delegations gained a number of Honourable Mentions and an Outstanding Delegation Award.

This year’s Rome MUN Conference attracted about 1,000 students from all over the world.

Another student delegation, representing the Republic of Latvia at the National MUN Conference in New York, was named the Honourable Mention Delegation.
