Illegal trade in ivory

At the 2995th Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held in Brussels on 22 February 2010, the Dutch delegation drew the attention of the Council on the increase of the illegal trade in ivory. In replacement for the Commissioner in charge of environment, Janez Potočnik, the Commissioner in charge of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dacian Ciolos, expressed the Commission's intention to strengthen the protection measures for elephants at international level and recalled the efforts which the EU already undertook in the framework of the MIKE program and the CITES convention.
