Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of the Dubai Multi Commodities Center and current Chairman of the Kimberley Process, was presented Honorary Membership of the World Jewelry Hub by its Chairman Eli Izhakoff.

The honor was bestowed upon Mr Bin Sulayem on his recent visit to Panama as a guest of the World Jewelry Hub. His visit involved witnessing the fast-developing Latin American diamond, gemstone and jewelry trade center, interacting with the leadership of the Panama Diamond Exchange, and discussing ways of increasing cooperation between the WJH and the Dubai Multi Commodities Center.

A meeting with Panama's Minister of Commerce, Augusto Arosemena led to discussions on current developments in the Kimberley Process, and ways to enhance it in the Latin American markets. "It is our privilege to welcome Ahmed bin Sulayem, and to benefit from the perspective of an industry leader who has played an essential role in the establishment of DMCC, which is the UAE's largest and fastest growing free zone and home to more than 11,000 companies," said Mr Izhakoff.

"Over the past 14 years, he and his team pioneered the development of a trading center in Dubai, handling multiple precious metals and gemstones, diamonds and jewelry. Their work has served both as a model and benchmark for what we are doing in Panama."

Expressing gratitude for the hospitality and honor of the Honorary WJH membership, Mr Bin Sulayem said, "I am very impressed with the caliber of the companies that are already established at the World Jewelry Hub. It has all the elements necessary to become an important industry player and the world's entry point to Latin America.”
