via Borneo Post, 25 July 2022: This news is a month old. Malaysia is preparing a bid to nominate the Niah National Park as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) has launched the bid for Niah National Park to be recognised as a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) World Heritage Site.
In a Facebook post, the corporation said the proposal came with the aim of achieving international recognition for the unique values of ‘such cross-border space, in terms of nature, landscapes and culture’.
In a separate post, the SFC said the national park had reopened its chalet doors to visitors with a fresh uplift of facilities and outlook.
