"I welcome the latest announcement of the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) thru Ms. Pia Wurtzbach, confirming the 2016 Miss Universe pageant in Manila next year!" - Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Wanda Corazon Tulfo-Teo"After all that’s been said and done, I happily welcome, on behalf of the Department of Tourism, the latest announcement of the Miss Universe Organization through Ms Pia Wurtzbach, that finally, the Philippines will, indeed, play host to the much-awaited 2016 Miss Universe pageant." says the DOT Secretary.
We see a video showing a vibrant Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach announcing that the Miss Universe 2016 beauty pageant is indeed happening soon here in Manila. She says she is excited to show people around her beautiful country. So the video was probably meant for foreigners, and may be the 2016 candidates, who will visiting the country soon when the world's most prestigious and lavish search for the most beautiful woman in the universe finally sets foot in our beloved country.
Most of the time it is favorable for the host country since it gets a big chance in having its candidate to be among the top finalists. Since being a part of the first set of finalists is already a big deal, to be included further at the last set of finalists is a huge bonus.
We would like to welcome in advance the arrival of the candidates and organizers of the Miss Universe Organization. As usual, our country would not disappoint you all since we have the best beaches and other tourist spots in the world. Our accommodations are luxurious enough and our culinary specialties are equally superb compared to those from the rest of the world. The best thing of all, and what makes it more fun in the Philippines, is its people with their warm smiles and sincere greetings and hospitality.
