BEIJING - Enforcement officers on the front line of China's fight against wildlife smugglers will receive more funding and improved technology, as part of new measures to tackle the menace, authorities said.

The country will also boost cross-department and cross-border cooperation to further protect endangered species and crack down on the illegal animal trade, according to a newly approved action plan.

The news was revealed on Friday by China's endangered species of wild fauna and flora import and export management office.
