VIP Delegation From Angola Attends Presidents Meeting

VIP Delegation From Angola Attends Presidents Meeting The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) Presidents Meeting began in Dubai with special sessions on lab-grown diamonds, provenance, and traceability.

An important delegation from Sodiam, Angola's state-owned diamond trading company, including Chairman Dr. Eugenio Bravo da Rosa, took part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the Presidents Meeting.

With diamond reserves estimated at 180 million carats, mainly in the provinces of Lunda Norte and Lunda Sul in the central and northeastern parts of the country, Angola has the potential to become the largest diamond mining country in the world. Angola’s total rough diamond production last year was 8.4 million carats with a value of $1.2 billion, according to Kimberley Process statistics.

As part of its strategic plans, Angola intends to establish a diamond bourse in Luanda, its capital city.

WFDB President Ernie Blom said: “We are happy to welcome this important delegation from Angola, a key player for future diamond mining potential and we welcome the important changes which have been taking place in the country. Obviously the WFDB is ready to welcome a new diamond bourse and we are happy that this is being studied.”
