The Historic Perimeter of Asmara and its Modernist Architecture (Eritrea) -in-asmara-eritrea/

What great news. If successful that would be a first one for Eritrea, a major Art Deco site and one of the best examples of African colonial architecture. However, with so many sites planning for 2017, currently 47, some are surely not going to make it to be considered.

Lack of support from the public for Dubai Creek world heritage bid? Some of these statements are troubling, perhaps ICOMOS will notice this "top-down" approach.

"The blame for this falls entirely on the public who are insensitive to the authorities' appeal."

"Any despoiling of this beautiful site is a reflection of our inexcusable apathy, which deserves punishment." .1601909

*We now have four Indian candidates for 2017:
Majuli, NP Bhitarkanika, Mumbay and temple architecture extension. Only two of them may be submitted.

*We also have three Chinese candidates for 2017:
Mt. Wuyi extension, Gulangyu and Qinghai Hoh Xil. Similarly, only two of them may be submitted.

*The primeval forests extension should probably be submitted by all member states at the same time. Are there any news from any other countries except Belgium?

*Adding Eritrea and Poland we now have 47 potential candidates for 2017, which means 2 sites would have to be dropped according to current operational guidelines. This count includes 2 sites only for China and India each.

*This would be a year with a lot of underrepresented countries:
Angola, Cambodia, Eritrea, French Polynesia, Ghana, Indonesia, Iraq, Kuwait, Maldives, Myanmar, Moldova, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Tonga, Turkmenistan, UAE, Uruguay and Vietnam. Poland and Tunisia are probably well represented, but have not submitted for a long time.
