The Kimberley Process Chair, Ahmed Bin Sulayem announced the second in a series of three, one-day ‘Special Forums’, on rough diamond valuation, to be held on 30 September 2016 at the Hylitt Hotel, Antwerp, Belgium. The Special Forum is being held in association with the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC).

The focus of the Forum - on valuation practices employed by the global diamond industry will unfold with an ‘Expert Workshop’, an open dialogue that will examine other methods being used that will eventually develop a more formalized approach to rough diamond valuation.

This second session will focus on the industry - representatives from mining companies, auction and tender experts, professional diamond valuators and polished price index specialists - the conclusions from which will be addressed in the third session in Dubai where the relevant governments will take center stage. The three pillars of the KP are also invited - Government, Industry and Civil Society.

KP Chair, Ahmed Bin Sulayem said, “In the second of these Special Forums, we will continue the dialogue to a better understanding of how a more formalized approach to rough diamond valuation would be beneficial to the entire industry. The collaboration with Antwerp World Diamond Centre will reinforce the debate as will the continued participation of the OECD. We aim to reach a consensus for universal conformity at our third and final meeting.”

The aim of these special forums is a commitment by all industry players that incorporates a set of best practices for all KP participants.

“Valuation is and remains a crucial expertise, especially for developing countries relying on the benefit of diamond revenues. This sequence of valuation seminars, organized by the KP Chair, is an excellent opportunity to enhance their knowledge and capacity. As a leading diamond trading centre, recognized for its long standing expertise, Antwerp is looking forward to contributing to the KP Chair’s initiative”, added AWDC President, Stephane Fischler.
