“The Iguazu Falls are part of the global memory of the third millennium,” said Bernard Weber, president of the New Seven Wonders Foundation, for the acts of consecration.
Whether it’s Brazilian or Argentine side: the consecration of Iguazu Falls is as one of the new 7 wonders of the world and it is both a source of pride as an impetus to continue working together, and show that there are no borders to divide if you think in that imposing frame.}
“Now, to work.” Thus spoke about the future governor of Misiones, Mauricio Closs, in the speech given at the 1st Congress of New Seven Wonders, held in that province.
Among the guidelines, the treaty was signed which ensures that the best way for this to be exploited further work in conjunction with the other six new wonders of the world to promote international tourism, serving as a block to show why they were selected from the 440 participants. Other highlights include participation in international tourism fairs and similar, covered under the command of the Swiss foundation New Seven Wonders, and the choice of an overall coordinator to be aware of all developments.
This dream started four years ago and shows no doubt that off, and the numbers can not lie about it. Just making a comparison between January this year and last, at the Falls on the Argentine side, there was a 15% increase in the number of visitors, and after this distinction and political future together, that number is expected to begin to multiply.
Bernard Weber was amazed by this visit and, always smiling and pleasant showing, said that from now on the bottom line is the need for preservation and care of resources, as explained at the press conference Sunday night, with the signing of the Treaty on the Brazilian side.
In addition, Weber said they are advanced negotiations to build a museum of the seven wonders of nature and theme parks, which will be located in each of the seven chosen destinations.
