As many of you will know, our industry all around the world was eagerly awaiting the CITES meeting vote to (hopefully) exempt finished musical instruments made with Rosewood. This vote was due to take place at the CITES meeting in Sri Lanka in May.

Terrorist incidents in Sri Lanka forced the meeting to be cancelled.

We have just been informed that the meeting is now taking place in Geneva between the 17th and 28th August. Our International Coalition from the industry will be there!
