CMU President’s Message
Chiang Mai University is a comprehensive University concentrating on Humanities and Technological, Social and Medical Sciences, aiming to produce quality graduates having a good moral foundation with a strong conscience for social responsibility. Chiang Mai University Students are urged and supported to combine both their implicit and explicit knowledge to criticize social conditions and problems, while fostering sustainable advancement in all social dimensions. It is thus the honor of Chiang Mai University to have this opportunity to organize the 15th APSSA International Conference 2016, a portal for eliciting thoughts and ideas from a new generation of both students and staff in order to positively shape the world.
At present, one nation cannot stand alone and be untouched by the world’s problems and with today’s current international economics, political and cultural relations, a nation’s interests is increasingly sympathetic to international concerns. As such, how to live in the world with an understanding of the problems and rising crises and to seek solutions to loosen the barriers is becoming increasingly recognized as the responsibility of every world citizen. As the world’s population demographic is gradually moving into an elder society, our hopes for a better world rest with a smaller demographic group, so more than ever, we need the enthusiasm and energy of the new generation to actively take part in providing world solutions.
On behalf of Chiang Mai University, I wish the 15th APSSA International Conference 2016 to be successful in generating fruitful ideas for enabling a sustainable future and a harmonious world for us all.
Clin. Prof. Niwes Nantachit, M.D.
