MANILA – Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of actor Cesar Montano as the new chief operating officer of the Tourism Promotions Board (TBP).

Speaking with ABS-CBN News’ Mario Dumaual, Teo said Montano will help in the preparations of the next edition of the Miss Universe pageant, which is set to be held in the Philippines in 2017.

“This will be a learning process for him. He will help us in the holding of Miss Universe,” Teo said.

The TPB is tasked with domestic and international promotions for the Department of Tourism. It was previously headed by marketing veteran Domingo Ramon Enerio III.

Montano is a vocal supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte. The actor attended the President’s inauguration in Malacañang last June.
