Indonesian Delegation to the Y20 Summit 2018
13 August - 19 August 2018, Cordoba, Argentina
Hi fellow Indonesian youths! We are just beginning to recover from the long interviews and an intense deliberation on the Top 15 Candidates for this year's Y20 recruitment during the past week. The good news is, now we have selected the final delegation!
The Argentinian Organizing Committee has continued the legacy of Germany's presidency to establish Y20 delegations of only two representatives from each G20 members for the Summit, which in itself made this year's selection process among the most competitive and intense we have ever experienced! We are deeply honoured by all the hours that all Indonesian applicants spent in perfecting their CVs, writing their essays, and preparing for their interviews. This year, we are proud to see a record 1.5% acceptance rate, showing continued enthusiasm for our programs. Other than the applicants, the Indonesian Youth Diplomacy (IYD) family would also like to express our highest appreciation to all of you who have shown genuine interests in representing Indonesia at the Y20 Summit 2018 in Argentina.
In narrowing down from 135+ applicants to Top 15 to finally Top 2, the IYD Recruitment Team has gone through intensive evaluation stages during the grading round using clear indicators, long hours of deliberation, and eventually coming up with tough and informed decisions. Not only that we ensure the process is fair, but we also committed ourselves to a transparent and robust approach until we reached into the final consensus.
Please join us to welcome the Indonesian delegation to the Y20 Argentina 2018!
