The Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) announced today that Philippines will host the Miss Universe pageant in January 2017.

Speaking about the announcement, Wanda Teo, Secretary, Philippine Department of Tourism: \"I would like to inform everybody that the Miss Universe beauty pageant will be on January 30, 2017 here in the Philippines,\" said Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo.

\"We have a President that comes from Mindanao and our Miss Universe is from Mindanao so I think it is the best time for us to do Miss Universe in the Philippines,\" she added.

The private sector will fund the $11 million needed to mount the 65th edition of the most prestigious beauty pageant.

\"The government is not going to spend any single centavo. It will be the private sector who will shoulder all the expenses,\" she said.

The ancillary Miss Universe events will possibly be held the country\'s top tourist destinations in Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Boracay, Cebu, Palawan and Vigan.

PDOT thought that the country\'s hosting of the Miss Universe pageant would give a big boost to businesses and livelihood of millions of Filipinos and expects the tourism industry to “gain tremendously” from it.
