Authorities in Taiwan are joining counterparts in Indonesia to help develop an ecotourism project on a remote Indonesian Island. Taiwan’s government-affiliated International Cooperation and Development Fund is leading the project which is still in the planning stages, reports Taiwan Today. Morotai Island, located in North Maluku Province, has great tourism potential, said Tao Wen-lung, Secretary General of the ICDF, who recently visited the remote destination. With its “pristine natural scenery” Tao sees strong potential for ecotourism, while the island also has great historical significance having acted as a US military base during World War II. Taiwan is sending a research team to the island this month to begin a survey.
