MANILA – Expect Pia Wurtzbach to continue promoting the Philippines even after her reign as Miss Universe.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo confirmed on Monday that she has asked Wurtzbach to be a tourism ambassador, and the beauty queen said yes.

“Sabi ko kay Pia, ‘pag natapos na ‘yung term mo, pwede ka nang maging tourism ambassador,” she said. “Sabi niya, why not?”

Teo noted that they have also tapped boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao to help them in promoting the country.

Last July, Wurtzbach said it has always been her dream to become an ambassador for the Philippines and promote tourism.

“I still continue on pursuing that goal of being a great ambassador as I go throughout my reign, as I visit different countries around the world as Miss Universe. I will continue on doing that,” she said.

Wurtzbach will pass on her Miss Universe crown in her home country, the Philippines, in January next year.
