    Wildlife Trafficking / Trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.

    On Monday's Backchat, wildlife trafficking. Hong Kong Customs recently seized more than $60million worth of elephant tusks and pangolin scales that arrived in a shipment from Africa, and over the years there have been seizures of illegal ivory and rhino horn by the authorities, that are believed to be for use in Chinese medicine or sculptures. After a record seizure in 2017 there were no prosecutions - authorities say there was insufficient evidence to support a reasonable prospect of convictio.  Is Hong Kong becoming a wildlife trafficking hub, despite laws here? Should Hong Kong take it more seriously? What other measures could be done to combat wildlife trafficking? After 9.20, trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.
