In the dynamic economic community, including 21 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, APEC’s members have been scoping with the problem of illegal trade of wild fauna and flora species with its increasing scale and speed, exhausting one of fundamental resources for economic development. Therefore the workshop was a chance for APEC’s countries work together based on the principals of equality, mutual understanding and assistance to repel inter-national wildlife trafficking activities.

Speaking at the workshop, Mr. Joakim Parker – Head representative of the international development aid agency highlighted Vietnam’s efforts in controlling wildlife trafficking activities, especially Vietnam implemented immediately the international commitments after The Luan Don Declaration such as issuing the Directive 03/CT-TTg dated on 20 February 2014 on enhancing the Governmental agencies and social awareness to conserve the endangered wildlife fauna and flora species.

Mr. Joakim Parker called Vietnam for upholding its important role in minimizing wildlife consumption demand not only in Vietnam and ASEAN countries but also APEC’s countries as one dynamic country in scientific, cultural and economic development, as well as natural and environmental protection.
