HANOI, October 21, 2014 -- Good morning. It is a pleasure to address this first APEC Capacity Building Workshop on Reduction of Demand for Illegally Traded Wildlife on behalf of the U.S. Government. I should add that I do so coming from the development perspective, as I represent U.S. Government development cooperation with Vietnam.

Wildlife trafficking undermines security and funds criminal networks. It seriously challenges national development by undermining economic growth and corroding the rule of law. Reductions in biodiversity have longer term consequences for development.
