HCM City-based Nova Entertainment has worked with the Miss Earth Organisation to launch the event in Vietnam starting on July 18.
Truong Ngoc Anh, president of Nova Entertainment, said that the Miss Earth 2023 is an opportunity to introduce Vietnam, its culture and lifestyle to the world.
“Our event aims to find ambassadors who will work to call for environment protection worldwide,” Anh said.
Miss Earth is the fourth largest international beauty pageant in the world, alongside Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss International, and is highly appreciated by the media for its scale, prestige and humanistic message.
The contest aims to find ambassadors with the responsibility of calling for the protection of the living environment in the world.
Miss Earth 2023 is expected to feature more than 100 contestants from different countries and territories around the world.
Miss Earth began in 2001 by Carousel Productions of the Philippines. Along with Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss International, the contest advocates for environmental awareness, conservation and social responsibility.
Vietnam played host to this contest in 2010.

However, she was not chosen to represent Vietnam at Miss Earth 2022. Explaining the reason, Truong Ngoc Anh, chairwoman of the board of Nova Entertainment which organises Miss Earth 2023 in Vietnam, told media workers on July 18 that Thu Thao has met criteria for the global contest.
