WORLD DIAMOND COUNCIL ANNUAL MEETING: OCTOBER 15-16, DUBAI
27 July 2017
The World Diamond Council (WDC), has announced that it will hold its 13th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from October 15-17, 2017, hosted by Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).

Among the items to be discussed at the AGM are industry recommendations for the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) review cycle and a proposed renewal of the WDC System of Warranties.

"The WDC is going forward with its Strategic Plan aimed at enhancing the KPCS and encouraging diamond industry self-regulation to increase supply chain transparency," stated Stephane Fischler, acting President of the WDC. "I am confident that our collaborative efforts will contribute to the further development of diamond industry integrity and strengthen consumer confidence in the diamond value chain."

Commenting on the upcoming AGM, DMCC Executive Chairman Ahmed Bin Sulayem says, "This is the second time that the WDC has hosted their Annual General Meeting in Dubai, one of the world's leading market places for rough diamonds. DMCC is delighted to see representatives of diamond bourses, banks, and diamond miners gather in an Arab country once again to discuss and tackle important topics, from supply chain integrity, to consumer confidence and demand. The WDC has been a strong support in helping grow Dubai into a diamond hub and we are privileged to host them," added Bin Sulayem.

The WDC announcement notes that the AGM is open to paid WDC members and invited guests only.
