The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) is fine-tuning the agenda for its meetings in Mumbai in a month’s time, says a press note from the organization.
WFDB President Ernie Blom said the organisation's agenda would comprehensively reflect the issues dominating the global diamond industry.
"There is certainly no shortage of issues to be debated by our bourse presidents and delegations from across the world," said Blom. "We will be discussing the US Federal Trade Commission's revised Jewelry Guides."
"In addition, we will be looking at the issues of banking, generic marketing, changes to the WFDB's by-laws and inner rules, and a presentation by a bourse that is applying for membership.
In addition to bourse delegations, we will also be welcoming representatives from a range of industry bodies at the October 23-25 Congress. This biennial meeting provides a forum for the WFDB to look at issues in depth and receive global input in order to decide on future policy," Blom added.
