HA NOI (VNS)—The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Management Authority of Viet Nam has stopped issuing licences for trade in CITES-listed species with Laos.
The Viet Nam Administration of Forestry yesterday sent an official document No 26/CTVN-DVHD to inform individuals and organisations in this regard.
The move came after the CITES Secretariat last Thursday ordered members to halt commercial trade in specimens of CITES-listed species with Laos because the country failed to implement requirements from the CITES Secretariat.
Individuals and organisations could call the number 0437335676 for further information. — VNS
