On 29 October 2018, China’s government announced that it has legalised the domestic trade in antique tiger and rhino products and the use of tiger bone and rhino horn from captive bred animals by hospitals.
The TRUE GREEN ALLIANCE, its directors and its members, salute your fortitude and your wisdom in defying the Western-based CITES organisation that has become so corrupted by the dominance of its animal rightist NGOs in recent years.
We hope this signals the beginning of a new era of sustainable wildlife trade between Africa and China; and we hope, too, that this one action signals the destruction of CITES itself. It is long overdue.
With this one action you have made many friends in Africa, Sir, and we will continue to support your bold decision this day.
With kind regards and best wishes,
Ron Thomson. CEO – The TRUE GREEN ALLIANCE.
