The World Wide Fund for Nature in Vietnam, better known as WWF Vietnam, on Wednesday joined forces with Hanoi Young Business Association to organize a seminar to call for Vietnamese entrepreneurs and German businesses active in the country to join hands in the protection of endangered wildlife. 

Over the years, Vietnam has been known as a transhipment point and a large consumption market for products from endangered wildlife, including rhino horns.

Van Ngoc Thinh, country director of WWF Vietnam, said the high demand for using products from wild animals has resulted in the fast extinction of endangered species.

Therefore, the Vietnamese and German business communities’ efforts and commitment to combating illegal consumption of wild animals are highly appreciated, Thinh added.

Nguyen Viet Hung, financial director of B. Braun Vietnam Co Ltd, says the company aims to carry out activities to boost environmental protection by using natural resources in a legal and responsible way.
