RAPAPORT... The Kimberley Process (KP) declared three new ‘compliant zones’ in the Central African Republic, meaning diamond exports from those regions can resume after a suspension of more than two years.

The KP’s monitoring team approved shipments from the sub-prefectures of Boda, Carnot and Nola in the west of the country on September 19, the KP announced.

CAR was re-admitted to the KP in May and two shipments have already been made from the Berberati region.

“Good progress has been made and hopefully we can move forward to a normalization of the situation in the western zone of CAR,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the United Arab Emirates-based chair of the KP for 2016.
