Participants attending the event exchanged views and insights on a wide range of wildlife-related topics, including achievements and shortcomings on current wildlife management, the advantages and disadvantages of demand reduction campaigns, as well as solutions for reinforcing impactful and long-term demand reduction strategies.
 
The Vietnamese government’s efforts to promote government-led social behavior change communication campaigns are recognized and appreciated. Today’s event included top-level discussions on how to translate political will into specific and effective actions fostering a change of practices against illegal ownership, purchasing, and consumption of wildlife products in the country. This effort confirms USAID’s intention to build upon Vietnam’s successes in this field and to continue mobilizing resources to conserve the country’s wealth of wildlife species.
 
Mr. Pham Dinh Toan, Vice Chairman of Office of the National Assembly Session XIV and Vice Chaiman of National Assembly Office said: “The Vietnamese Party and Government have realized the urgent need to address demand for illegal wildlife products. As the highest organ of state, the National Assembly has a strong will to reduce the overexploitation of natural resources and to drive down consumption demand for illegally traded wildlife products. Solutions identified during the event will be valuable in strengthening existing achievements and guiding future action. We continue to seek international partnerships together with an improved national cooperation mechanism to ultimately defeat one of the most serious transnational crimes in the world.”
