Botswana President Urges for Help to End the Country’s Dependence on Diamond Trade at UN General Assembly
A notable development ensued at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly when Mokgweetsi Masisi, President of Botswana urged world leaders to help Botswana out of its heavy dependence on diamonds. The country was facing "an uphill battle" to invite diverse investing options, the president said, while reiterating diamonds as a resource that was still the "bedrock" of its economy. At the same time, diamantaires from various countries including India have reportedly been relocating offices and operations to Botswana in the recent past. Belgium’s unyielding position of not blocking Russian diamonds, due to concerns of harming EU economies more than Russia’s purse, has the world losing patience with the Dutch nation, especially the countries of Poland, Ireland and the Baltics.

The Indian subcontinent witnessed a barge of events due to the approaching festive Navratri, Diwali and wedding season. COUTURE India 2022 Delhi Edit organised by Indian Jeweller Magazine was scheduled early in September followed by the India Gems and Jewellery Show 2022, Diwali Edition organised by the Gems and Jewellery Domestic Council and Gem & Jewellery India International Fair orgnised by the Jewellers & Diamond Traders Association - Madras and Tamil Nadu Jewellers Federation were a few notable events among the many events that steered potent business opportunities to fruition.
