MISS South Pacific will visit the country at the end of this month.
Solomon Island Pageant Director, Ms Joyce Konofilia told local media during a press conference yesterday that Miss South Pacific, who also Miss Fiji, will be in Honiara for three days.
It is understood the Miss South Pacific Islands Board have approved a request by the Solomon Islands Pageant organiser for the region’s queen to visit Solomon Islands.
Ms Konofilia said during Miss Anne Christine Dunn’s stay in Honiara she will give awareness on the roles of Miss South Pacific Islands especially to the local pageants.
“The awareness is very important especially to our local pageants in case we win South Pacific Pageant Show we know the role of Miss South Pacific Islands.”
She said the focus of her awareness will be on women issues as she will have the opportunity to talk with certain organisations.
She is also likely to visit government ministries, women organisations, charitable organisations, tourism sectors and other organisations.
She said currently they are preparing for her arrival especially on the logistics for her visit.
