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.
Alhamdulillah. UNESCO extended the approval as status of GEOPARK.
Hope LADA more sensitive on eco-tourism.
