A: for your first question, I need to check.

With regard to your second question, we have asked the State Forestry and Grassland Administration of China about the situation. I would like to tell you that it is Chinas consistent position to strengthen the protection of all endangered species, including rhinos and tigers, according to law. The Notice on Strict Control of the Operation and Utilization of Rhinos and Tigers and Their Products promulgated by the State Council in 1993 is partly inconsistent with the existing laws, fails to take into account the realistic and reasonable needs of scientific research, popular science education, law enforcement and appraisal, medical treatment and rescue, cultural relics protection and cultural exchanges, and so on. Other rhino and tiger products besides bone have no special strict regulations, which is not conducive to cracking down on eating tiger meat, making and selling tiger skin clothing and other bad phenomena. In view of the above-mentioned problems, this policy adjustment adheres to the legal rules of protection first, standardized utilization and strict supervision, and fully considers the possible positive and negative effects on the protection of rhinos and tigers worldwide. It not only strictly limits the scope of special circumstances, but also formulates a series of strict supervision measures and improves the multi-sectoral alliance. Coordination mechanism of law enforcement should be strengthened to crack down on law enforcement, actively guide the public to resist illegal acts, and play a more effective and positive role in global rhino and tiger protection. We have taken note of the concerns of the relevant parties in the international community and are willing to fully communicate with the international community and enhance mutual understanding.
