Trade in orchid across the border must obtain Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) permission from the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, it was learnt by Eleven Media Group. All species of orchid have been registered in the CITES list.
Trading of endangered species of Wild Fauna and Flora are listed according to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora-CITES. This Convention was formed in order to control extreme trading of Wild Fauna and Flora around the world.
The aim of this Regulation is to ensure the protection and conservation of endangered species of wild fauna and flora, through the control of trade in these species by establishing conditions for their importation, exportation or re-exportation, in accordance with the CITES Convention.
As Myanmar is a member of CITES, permission given by the local authority are needed for trading of orchids. Eight orchid species are listed as endangered species, according to CITES.
Trading of this species is prohibited and remaining orchid species are listed as endangered species in future. Trading is permitted if carried out according to rules and regulations.
