Still in Business: The Ivory Trade in Asia, Seven Years after the CITES  Ban

Document (summary, 100 KB) Edited by: Stephen V. Nash. (April 1997). 82pp. ISBN 1 85850 124 5 (ISBN 978 1 85850 124 6). This report provides a review of current Asian ivory trade, examining the recent information from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan. The main volume of trade is no longer in intricate works of art, but in signature seals (known as hankos in Japanese) used to transact everyday business in some parts of Asia. The report shows that Asia's ivory industry is still in business, seven years after the international ban.
