Komodo about to get kicked out
 

Mimi Hudoyo, Jakarta (2011-02-01)
 
INDONESIA's Komodo National Park is in danger of being suspended as a finalist of the New7Wonders of Nature campaign.
 
The initiative, started in 2007 to create a list of seven natural wonders chosen through a global poll, announced on its official website yesterday that it may be forced to suspend the Indonesian entry as one of its 28 finalists on February 7 “due to certain legal commitments and official pledges not being honoured”.
 
“Discussions are underway to resolve this matter positively,” the initiative added.

In an SMS response to TTG Asia e-Daily's request for comment, Indonesia Ministry of Culture and Tourism director general of tourism marketing Sapta Nirwandar said: “We are studying the matter.”

Nirwandar had earlier said that a win by Komodo would help emphasise Indonesia's new Wonderful Indonesia tourism brand.
