The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (Cites) will officially list phayung, or Siamese rosewood, on its protected Appendix II next week. 

Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation deputy chief Theerapat Prayurasiddhi said Cites will officially register the phayung tree under its Appendix II next Wednesday.

Appendix II requires countries to regulate the trade of a species by issuing export permits to ensure its sustainability in the wild. Failure of Cites members to comply can result in sanctions.
