In a sweeping action to keep its promise, China on Friday shut down up to one third of its legal ivory processing workshops and retail stores across the country.Closed were 67 ivory carving workshops and retail outlets listed on the country's total ban which takes effect toward the end of this year.At least 105 other workshops and retail outlets are to be shut down this year.As the world's largest importer and end-user of elephant ivory tusks, China's clampdown on the ivory trade was commented as "historic" and a "game changer" for the future of elephants by some animal conservation charities."But now what we're seeing is a momentous decision to actually close domestic markets. And by closing domestic markets, you've dampened the appetite. There's not going to be an opportunity to sell ivory any more, but also there's no opportunity for those who illegally acquire ivory to launder it through legal outlets. So it's a very strong decision, bold decision that's being implemented very rapidly by the government," said John Scanlon, secretary-general of Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.China used to account for about 70 percent of the global ivory market. A total ban will have a huge impact on those who make their living from ivory trade, and some ivory sellers are already looking for a way out, like Ai Chunqing. "From the point of view of the industry, because the whole world is banning this, there might be some people who want to buy or sell, but I think that as a Chinese citizen we need to respect the law and I trust every Chinese citizen won't continue to trade or cause harm," said Ai.Conservationists say the Chinese clampdown on the ivory trade has already seen the number of elephants killed in the last three years down by 65 percent, according to a report by Save the Elephants.Save the Elephants researchers say the price of ivory has dropped drastically from its peak of 2,100 U.S. dollars per kilogram in 2014 to 730 dollars per kilogram in February, 2017.http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20170401...Subscribe us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CCTVPlusCCTV+ official website: http://www.cctvplus.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv...Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent....Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus
