It was time to welcome New Boards for two members of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) - the Tokyo Diamond Exchange and the Borsa Diamanti D'Italia. WFDB Avi Paz congratulated the incoming boards and wished them a successful and fruitful term of service to their bourses. "More than ever before, we look at our members to not only upkeep the rules and regulations of their bourses, and consequently those of the WFDB, but also to exert influence on their local markets in assuring that diamonds remain a preferred and highly regarded luxury product. Our members not only market diamonds, but also play a central role in advancing confidence in diamonds in the supply pipeline and ultimately in furthering consumer confidence in polished diamonds."
