Economic and Financial Committee

St. Gallen is a university known worldwide for its business and economics faculties, so it comes as no surprise that this year’s SGMUN Conference hosts a committee specifically directed towards economic questions. A classic MUN experience is combined with a topic specific to the place you are visiting, merging into a debate which promises to be fascinating. In a world of increasing globalisation, economics are a central theme for politics and diplomacy, and this committee proposes to make you familiar with some of today’s most controversial topics.

Economic and Financial Committee

The Economic and Financial Committee (ECOFIN) is the Second Committee of the General Assembly. ECOFIN deals with issues related to economic development and growth such as macroeconomic policy questions, sustainable development, globalization and interdependence, or the eradication of poverty amongst others. In ECOFIN, all 193 member states of the United Nations are represented making it an alluring choice both for first-time and more experienced delegates with a flair for development, trade and the world economy in general.
