Moti Ganz, Chairman of the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI) and President of the Israel Diamond Manufacturers Association, said that the large diamond exporters have made an important contribution to the Israeli Diamond Industry, as well as to Israel’s economy. He noted, however, that the strength of Israel’s diamond industry rests on the valuable contribution of all industry members – manufacturers, exporters and traders.

According to Shmuel Mordechai, The Manager of the Diamonds, Precious Stones and Jewelry Administration in the Ministry of Industry Trade and Labor, Israel’s total net polished diamonds’ exports touched $7.075 billion in 2007. The top 30 companies contributed to 44% of this value amounting to $3.160 billion. The total export of the leading 15 companies valued at $739 million, which constituted 10.4% of the total net exports. The list of 30 companies did not include these 15 companies according to Mordechai as the companies did not want to disclose their export data.

IDI Managing Director Eli Avidar said, "The Israel Diamond Institute applauds all of the industry's exporters, large and small. We are dedicated to serving the entire industry, investing major efforts in developing new markets -- such as China and India -- and expanding existing ones."
