Vietnam will host Miss Earth 2010 and 2011, according to a recent MoU signed by the Philippines owner of the contest and Thanh Nien Media Corporation.
Under the memorandum signed on January 29th by Philippines-based Carousel Productions Inc. and Thanh Nien Corp., the two sides will join hands in organizing a total of 10 Miss Earth events in Vietnam.
After the two pageants are held in Vietnam this year and next year, the beauty contest will be held in another country and will return to Vietnam later.
The official contract for the Miss Earth events between Carousel and Thanh Nien Corp. will be signed later this month once approved by concerned agencies.
Raymon Monzon, President of Carousel, said, ââ‚¬Å“The Miss Earth 2010 is the 10th event of its kind and this is also the first time weââ‚¬â„¢ll bring the pageant out of the Philippines, its home country.ââ‚¬
ââ‚¬Å“We decided to choose Vietnam because the country is close to the Philippines and it successfully organized a special competition for Miss Earth 2007.ââ‚¬
According to Nguyen Cong Khe, Chairman of Thanh Nien Corp.ââ‚¬â„¢s Executive Board, the events would help boost the images of both the Philippines and Vietnam and ââ‚¬Å“promote the Miss Earth brand to a higher level.ââ‚¬
The official venue for the Miss Earth 2010 contest in Vietnam is not disclosed yet but there is a high possibility that Khanh Hoa Province will be chosen, according to organizers.
