REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, BANDUNG -- UNESCO's Fact Finding Mission will evaluate Ciletuh Geopark in Pelabuhan Ratu, West Java before it can be named as one of UNESCO's Global Geoparks by the end of 2017.
"That team will check every single aspect of Ciletuh Geopark, including the local transport infrastructure, the signage on the roads and the quality of the official guide materials," said the Administration Assistant for Economic Affairs and Development for West Java, Denny Juanda, on Wednesday.
