"Sri Lanka is proud to pioneer and develop the eCITES permit processing platform fulfilling a long-term need for an efficient and effective system, providing internal controls and transparency of CITES permits via the special authentication validation feature. Thereby improving collaboration between international and national agencies in implementing the convention."
