After a hiatus of three years due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, Malaysia is set to reclaim the spotlight as the host for the much-anticipated Miss World Noble Queen pageant next month. Last held in 2019 in Hong Kong, where the French representative Sonia Mansur emerged victorious, this year marks the sixth edition of the esteemed competition, with the final night scheduled for December 12 at Berjaya Hotel Times Square, Kuala Lumpur.
Themed 'Protecting the Environment,' the Miss World Noble Queen 2023 pageant aims to transcend traditional beauty pageantry by celebrating both outer and inner beauty, talent, wisdom, and promoting environmental awareness alongside other charitable causes.
Jan Sit, the founder of Miss World Noble Queen and the beauty queen of Mrs World Noble Queen Tourism International pageant 2015, expressed his delight in announcing Malaysia as the host for this prestigious competition. He stated, "We are pleased to announce that Malaysia will host the Miss World Noble Queen 2023 pageant. This is a valuable opportunity for us to showcase the beauty and cultural diversity of Malaysia to the world. This global pageant will promote Malaysian tourism through the country's rich cultural and landscape diversity and put Malaysia on the world map for beauty pageants."
The event is expected to bring together 25 Miss World Noble Queen delegates from around the world, representing countries such as Greece, Moldova, Germany, Czech Republic, Georgia, Slovakia, Estonia, Belarus, Switzerland, France, Romania, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Kenya, Japan, India, China, and the host nation, Malaysia.
The competition is scheduled to unfold over eight days, commencing with the arrival of the participants on December 5. Jan Sit emphasized that the Miss World Noble Queen 2023 pageant has garnered support from Tourism Malaysia, an agency under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture. This collaboration aims to not only highlight the beauty and hospitality of Malaysia but also to showcase the nation's commitment to environmental stewardship.
In addition to the main event, various programs, including art and cultural heritage activities, have been curated for all participants as integral components of the competition. Jan Sit affirmed, "All participants will be provided with traditional art and culture experiences and visit tourist attractions and famous landmarks in the country."
As Malaysia prepares to host this international spectacle, the Miss World Noble Queen 2023 pageant is poised to not only crown a deserving queen but also to serve as a platform for promoting environmental consciousness and cultural exchange on a global stage. This event signifies a significant step towards the revival of beauty pageants in the post-pandemic era, demonstrating Malaysia's resilience and commitment to fostering international connections through the celebration of beauty, talent, and environmental responsibility.
