Ernie Blom President of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) commented: “Events like the Rough Diamond Days is key to the growth and development of the industry. I am very proud to give my full support to this initiative, now firmly established as a key trading event in its second year.
"The WFDB strongly supports this kind of venture and encourages all trading platforms that help build trade between bourses while increasing visibility for diamonds in the luxury goods market. I would like to extend my appreciation and congratulations to Freddy Inzlicht, Michel Schonfeld, Michael Vaughan and the Antwerpsche Diamantkring C.V.B.A. The four WFDB bourses in Antwerp will all participate in this event, creating a trade opportunity of note.”
The WFDB supports and encourages the development of the diamond trade and values the initiative shown by member Bourses in furthering the cause, Blom added.
