New crucial decisions have been taken about the fate of the aesthetic sector in Lebanon, will be announced in a press conference today at 11 AM, at the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism.
According to ‘Nashra’, the Minister of Tourism Fady Abboud, has taken actions to stop all the subsidiary beauty contests in Lebanon, and retain only the Miss Lebanon pageant which will be held in the second half of September, by LBCI.

“We welcome you today to launch the Miss Lebanon officially by the Ministry of Tourism, to emphasize first the importance of this event which is beyond mere aesthetic competition, but also embodies the value of large national, and secondly, an emphasis on the insistence of the Ministry to bring this competition to the highest levels of civilization, and the coronation of a Beauty Queen capable to compete internationally, as being a real example of the Lebanese girl that combines beauty, culture and education, as well as an effective role in society and its development.”
Abboud also added that the beauty sector management is exclusively the responsibility of the Ministry of Tourism, in terms of legislation, regulation and supervision of the implementation.
