As noted at local news on Saturday, January 28, 2012, New7Wonders (N7WN) Founder-President Bernard Weber formally announced that PPUR won as one of the New7Wonders of Nature, based on global votes.

According to reports, Mr. Weber made the announcement that day in a press briefing at the Heritage Hotel in Pasay City, along with Puerto Princesa Mayor Edward Hagedorn, and congratulated the Filipino people.

“When your very own President Aquino came out in support of the PPUR campaign, I knew that this country was taking the New7Wonders of Nature seriously,” Weber was quoted telling to reporters on Saturday.

“Fans of PPUR all over the world responded to his call for action by voting in record numbers and today’s confirmation is the well-earned reward for this extraordinary display of enthusiasm,” he added.

“This confirmation is wonderful news for Puerto Princesa, and a great example of how now its more fun to be in the Philippines,” Mayor Hagedorn reportedly said.

“World-wide exposure of our natural beauty on this level is critical both for tourism and for our image nationally and internationally.” The Palawan mayor added.

Back in November last year, PPUR was among the winners of New7Wonders of Nature during the first count of the worldwide vote, along with Amazon, Halong Bay, Iguazu Falls, Komodo, Table Mountain, and Jeju Island, which earlier was also confirmed winner.

Meanwhile, Weber and Hagedorn are now reportedly discussing the preparations for the inauguration for PPUR, as well as the implementation of the strategic plan on how to promote it as one of the New7Wonders of Nature.
