"My goal is for the pageant to become an avenue to showcase the rich Filipino culture and its truly magnificent artistic expressions through a spectacle of beauty", Mr. Dela Vega said.
KIF Travel and Leisure, a Chinese company catering to property development and application apart from tourism, travel and leisure business headed by the owner and CEO, Mr. Tu Yu Han showed its support to the advocacy of the pageant by having them as an official partner of the Jewel of the Philippines 2017. The partnership aims to introduce and bring the Chinese and Filipino culture closer together and provide an avenue for a non-traditional "cultural experience" through a beauty pageant.
"The rich culture and friendly people makes the Philippines a perfect destination for both business and leisure. The partnership with Jewel of the Philippines is a good start to staging a new Philippine-based international tilt, Jewel of the World next year", Mr. Dela Vega emphasized.
