Antwerp, December 11, 2007: An Indian Government Delegation visited the Antwerp World Diamond Centre today in preparation for its Kimberley Process chair responsibility starting from January 2008.

Delegation members were Anu Sharma, Director of India’s Department of Commerce, V.K. Sharma, Senior Technical Director of NIC and Kewal K. Duggal, Regional Director of the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council.

After visiting the AWDC’s Diamond Office, the delegation members were informed on the industry’s self-regulation measures by members of the Antwerp diamond industry and bourses.

From 2008, India will be chairing the Kimberley Process, the joint government, international diamond industry and civil society initiative to set up a certification scheme for rough diamonds.

The chair supervises the implementation of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), the operations of the working groups and committees, and the general administration of the Process. The chair is elected every year at the plenary meeting.
