Ivory trade ban
Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ”Ivory Trade Ban”.
China has long been one of the world's biggest markets for ivory, but as of 2018 all trade in ivory and ivory products in the country is illegal.
Designated processing enterprises and trade venues of ivory and ivory products were closed before March 31, 2017, according to a notification published by the State Council on December 30, 2016
On December 29, 2017, China's state forestry administration issued a public service advertisement, jointly with China Wildlife Conservation Association and WildAid.
The ivory products are of great value, but this value is not in its price but in numerous lives of elephants where they are from. Ivory trade is now banned in China. Ivory is no longer a commercial item in accordance with law.
