The Miss Chinese World pageant is the brainchild of Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi, who is no stranger in the pageant circuit. He has 25 years of pageant organizing experience under its belt for both international and local beauty pageants. “I created the Miss Chinese World pageant in year 2005. Being in the pageant industry for as long as I have, I realize more and more that the younger generations are shunning their roots to quickly embrace the latest trends and identities of other cultures. Being Chinese, I decided that it is most importance to keep our beautiful Chinese language, cultures, values and traditions alive. I hope that in years to come, this effort of mine will bear fruit and see the younger generations reflecting the tenets of Chinese values such as tenacity, respect, and filial piety,” said Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi during the press conference held at One World Hotel.
