MANILA – Vigan in Ilocos Sur has been named as one of the New7Wonders Cities, organizers announced Sunday night in Dubai.
Bernard Weber, founder and president of New7Wonders contest, said the results are based on votes.
“They will now be checked, validated and independently verified. Once the verification process has been completed, New7Wonders will then work with the confirmed cities to organize official inauguration events,” New7Wonders said.
The New7Wonders Cites are Vigan, Beirut, Doha, Durban, Havana, Kuala Lumpur, and La Paz.
“[The 7 winners] represent the global diversity of urban society. For the first time in human history, more than half of our planet’s population lives in cities and this election emphasizes the dramatically challenging character of our changing world,” he said.
