CBMUN 18 is a simulation of the historic and notable Model United Nations in Karachi, which transpires in the prestigious business school; Institute of Business Management (IoBM). It is an annual event hosted by the Literary Public Speaking Society of IoBM where the participating delegates form teams, research a country, take on roles as diplomats, and debate on international issues to formulate solutions for world problems. At CBMUN, we aim to provide the youth with a platform which enables them to engage in dialogue, debate, and discussions promote peace.

The four day conference will commence on the 8th of February. Applicants come from different schools, colleges and universities to discuss global issues through negotiations. The participants represent countries as diplomats and ambassadors. Their primary objective is to reach concrete solutions to global issues by the end of each conference. CBMUN 18 is not just about serious discussions. We also host a variety of awe-inspiring social events where participants socialize and get to know each other.

Whatever decision they take does not only affect the people of Pakistan but also helps Pakistan make its way up the power ladder, ready to deal with threats internal and external. PNA is the sovereign legislative body of Pakistan, and the simulation of PNA in CBMUN18 will be bilingual.
