Republic of the Philippines
Office of the Vice President
Warmest greetings to the CQ Global Quest, Inc., as it holds the first Miss World Philippines pageant.
It has been said that lucky is the man who marries a Filipina for our women are renowned worldwide not only for their grace and beauty, but also for their strength, intellect and charisma. Truly, the beauty of the Filipina transcends physical attributes. In the global arena, the Filipina stands out. We have to look no further than former President Cory Aquino as proof of this,
This year's theme, "Beauty in Giving," reflects the generous spirit of the Filipino people. May this maiden pageant serve as a venue to showcase the heart and soul of the Filipina, and become an instrument to further beauty with a purpose and help improve the lives of our less fortunate brethren.
