THE IVORY TRADE

EPI countries believe that any legal trade in ivory will provide cover for an

illegal trade, and lead to an upsurge of poaching across Africa. The tragic lessons

of the recent past are clear. The EPI is encouraged by the strong international consensus in favour of its position, and salutes the recent measures taken by

China, Hong Kong and Singapore to end the ivory trade.
