The recent visit to Bali by Miss World 2011, Ivian Sarcos, permitted the 22-year-old Venezuelan beauty the chance to tour the island and pay a courtesy call on Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika.
During her visit with Bali’s chief executive, Sarcos told governor Pastika of the desire of the Miss World organizer’s desire to hold the 2013 Miss World competition in Bali.
Joining the meeting was Julia Morley, co-chair of the Miss World Organization, who explained to the governor that Bali was chose because of its success in hosting many international events.
The event will take place in Bali in September of 2013 and use a number of locations around the island as settings for the competition, which is televised internationally.
Following the meeting, governor Pastika said 2013 was shaping up to become a busy year of events in Bali. Pastika pointed to the provincial elections, the Bali Arts Festival, a Development Exhibitions, the APEC Summit and, now, the Miss World 2013 competition.
The governor while meeting with the reigning Miss World asked that in holding the event in Bali “local wisdom” and “local values” be respected. Pastika hope equal emphasis would be placed on intelligence and not just physical beauty.
Miss Sarcos, speaking in Spanish through an interpreter, told the press in Bali that she was most impressed with Indonesian cuisine.
