The World Diamond Council (WDC) plans to hold its 13th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The event will be held between October 15-17, 2017 and will be hosted by Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC). The WDC is an industry group focused on preventing conflict diamonds from entering the legitimate global supply chain and protecting the value of natural diamonds.

Among the items to be discussed at the AGM are industry recommendations for the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) review cycle and a proposed renewal of the WDC System of Warranties. “The WDC is going forward with its Strategic Plan aimed at enhancing the KPCS and encouraging diamond industry self-regulation to increase supply chain transparency,” stated Stephane Fischler, acting President of the WDC. “I am confident that our collaborative efforts will contribute to the further development of diamond industry integrity and strengthen consumer confidence in the diamond value chain.”

The program agenda begins with the WDC Board of Directors meetings. Also, Mr. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of the DMCC, will make the keynote address at the opening session of the AGM. A Welcome Gala Dinner with all the Dubai Diamond Conference delegates will follow.

“This is the second time that the WDC has hosted their Annual General Meeting in Dubai, one of the world’s leading market places for rough diamonds,” stated Mr. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC. “DMCC is delighted to see representatives of diamond bourses, banks, and diamond miners gather in an Arab country once again to discuss and tackle important topics, from supply chain integrity, to consumer confidence and demand. The WDC has been a strong support in helping grow Dubai into a diamond hub and we are privileged to host them.”

WDC members can register for the event on the WDC website. The WDC AGM is open to paid WDC members and invited guests only.
