Langkawi And Juju To Cooperate

Jeju Island Geopark
LANGKAWI, June 2 (Bernama) -- Langkawi and Jeju Island authorities have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop their geoparks.

Langkawi Development Authority general manager Datuk Azman Umur said on Thursday the MoU covered sharing of technology and information and would also include cooperation in education.

"We will make full use of the MoU to bring Langkawi Geopark to the international level," he said.

He said that Lada assistant manager Hanafi Ahmad led a seven-man delegation to South Korea for the signing last week.

Five of the delegation members were from the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, which will have a student exchange programme with Korean academic institutions.

The geopark, which encompasses the 99 islands in the Langkawi chain, is the first geopark in Southeast Asia and was recognised by Unesco, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, in 2007.

Jeju Island will celebrate its first anniversary as a Unesco-recognised geopark in October.

Jeju island is a nice place to visit.. Hopefully this MOU will benefit both Islands.
