Major diamond miners are expected to share views on transparency, responsibility and sustainability in producing countries at this month’s World Diamond Congress.
A panel discussion on the topic is scheduled for May 19 at the 37th congress in Dubai.
“We are expecting delegates from the major diamond producing companies and countries to take part," said Ernie Blom, president of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, co-organizer of the event with the International Diamond Manufacturers Association. “They will present their views on the state of the market and their supply strategies, as well as other subjects.”
The congress will run from May 16 to 19, with a focus on the theme of transparency, responsibility and sustainability.
"For the first time at a World Diamond Congress, we are introducing a panel element with the aim of encouraging attendees to take part,” Blom added. “This should lead to some fascinating exchanges, with highly relevant questions from the floor to the panelists.”
