LANGKAWI: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) has given its approval to extend Langkawi's status as a geopark, until 2015.
Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) public relations officer Ramizi Hasan said the approval followed, after a review by two Unesco officers in July.
He said the Langkawi Geopark was declared by the Unesco Global Geopark Network as the 52nd geopark on June 1, 2007.
"Many achievements have been recorded, including an increase in tourist arrivals since the declaration of the Langkawi geopark.
"We appreciate Unesco for the approval," he told Bernama here Sunday. - Bernama
