The announcement was made last July 28, 2016 by Department of Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo where they held a press conference in Makati Philippines. 
“I would like to inform everybody that the Miss Universe pageant will be on January 30, 2017 in the Philippines,” said Teo. “The government is not going to spend any single centavo. It will be the private sector who would shoulder the expenses.”
“Private sector will handle the expenses. The president’s concern was the expenses. But when we assured him that there will be no funding from the government. He said, okay. ‘This is already okay’ So we don’t know where the news report came from that he did not like it. He never said that,” Undersecretary Kat De Castro added when there’s a news circulating yesterday that the President allegedlyUniverse​id know already. 
“They got in touch with me this morning. Shawn McClain, who is the VP at Miss U, was shocked when that article came out because everyone was already on board. The article says the president doesn’t want it to happen,” De Castro said.
Teo said that she called Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea to consult if her department can announce the news following some confusion surrounding Duterte’s earlier statement, saying “I wouldn’t want to spend on it.”
“I told [Medialdea], ‘Is it okay if we announce that the Miss Universe will be held in the Philippines, and he said yes,'” Teo said.
“We were planning to set up a press con for the announcement earlier, but I said, let us just wait said, let administrative order. But because of the news release, I said we should come out and announce,” Teo told reporters.
“The administrative order will be signed before the end of the month,” she added.
The Tourism chief confirmed that Japanese billionaire and chief of Tiger Resort, Kazuo Okada, as well as the country’s richest man, Henry Sy, are among them.
President Duterte met with officials of the Tiger Resort, Leisure, Entertainment Inc. led by Chairman Kazuo Okada, Executive, Assistant to the Chairman Sumire Kamura and Chief Operating Officer Takahiro Usui on July 18 at the Music Room in Malacañan Palace on July 18. Details of their conversation, however, were not disclosed.

Our Top Picks for Miss International 2015!

This coming Thursday, November 5, 2015 is the finals of the 55th Miss International pageant to be held at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel Hiten Hall in Tokyo Japan. The show will start at 4pm JPT (3pm Manila time). This year Miss International will bring back the Top 15, then the Top 10 where the remaining 10 candidates will deliver their speeches. After more

than 3 weeks of pre pageant activities we present to you our Top picks.
Miss International 2015 candidates.
My Top 15 includes:
15. Macau
14. Canada
13. Thailand
12. Spain
11. Hungary
Top 10
10. United States of America
9. Japan
8. Brazil
7. Kenya
6. France
Miss International is known for being unpredictable when it comes to crowning their winners and we have a feeling that they might not go to that route and crown the obvious one. So here it is, my Top 5 picks starting with:
5. VIETNAM Pham Hong Thuy Van – For me she’s the most underrated candidate this year and she could be the huge spoiler of the night. I’ve seen a video of her during the Miss International forum and this girl can speak. Her speaking skills are superb. After that forum I noticed that she’s always appointed as a speaker on every forum that was conducted throughout the pageant. That’s a plus point for her.
4. PHILIPPINES Janicel Lubina – Considered as a front runner from the start, but as the competition transcends she fades away. Still, I believe that she will deliver comes the final night. Armed with a beautiful face and a body to die for. Her inspiring life story is a plus for her.
3. HONDURAS Jennifer Valle – The most charming candidate this year. A breath of fresh air. She can light a room and capture your heart with a smile.
2. MEXICO Lorena Sevilla – She has the most angelic face this year. Very beautiful. She has this aura that you would just like/love her. When I saw a photo of her where she was dressed in a kimono and a Japanese gold headdress/ crown was put on her, it felt like it was her crowning moment and that would be very possible comes the final night of the competition.
1. VENEZUELA Edymar Martinez – No doubt that she’s the girl to beat and she did not fail everyones expectations. Very consistent throughout the competition. The girl came to the competition well prepared. It’s obvious that Miss International loves her because her photos are all over on their social media accounts. She’s not just a beautiful lady, but with a charming personality. She would be a perfect face of Miss International for 2015.
Well, there you have it guys Edymar Martinez of Venezuela is my choice as Miss International 2015. Feel free to drop your comments or reactions below.
