This year’s pageant edition is the new beginning for Miss Tourism Philippines (MTP). This year they’re not just a platform for young ladies to compete but they also commit to make the whole nation united with their mission, and that is to promote our country’s tourism through Beauty, Arts and Culture. MTP believes that tourism has a great impact in helping the country’s socio-economic status and as a national pageant, they will use this to involve the Local Government units in creating more tourist attractions in their own local community. Leveraging the life of many by providing better opportunities when it comes to business and livelihood. Valuing and preserving the country’s art and culture. MTP is also focused on making sure that they will continue on making awareness about the almost forgotten lifestyle and culture. They have high hopes that this year they’ll be able to help the Philippines not only with tourism but also in preserving the natural resources by giving back to Mother Nature and the community.
