A memorandum regarding Vietnam’s northern Thanh Hoa province’s hosting of the 2015 Mrs. World pageant was signed on May 8.
According to the Thanh Hoa People’s Committee, David Z. Marmel, chair of the Mrs. World Organization; Vuong Van Viet, vice chair of the province’s People’s Committee; and Doan Thi Kim Hong, the First Mrs. World, the Mrs. World Organization’s Vice President and chair of the CIAT Co.’s management board, signed the said memorandum.
Viet said the province has made thorough preparations for the event, which is a golden opportunity for the province to promote itself to the world and develop its economy.
As the province looks like a miniature version of Vietnam and is home to several historical sites including the Ho Dynasty Citadel, Lam Kinh – a national relic, Sam Son beach, Cam Luong fish pond, Ham Rong Bridge and the Horse River, the local government is positive that the event will be a big success and help its tourism prosper.
ZMarmel expressed his satisfaction with the province’s preparations and said his organization will consider adopting the Dong Son drum, typical of the Dong Son Culture which dates back to 700 BC-100, as the 2015 Mrs. World symbol.
Vietnam hosted the 2009 Mrs. World competition in southern Ba Ria Vung Tau province, in which Mrs. Vietnam Hoang Thi Yen was named the second runner-up.
