RAPAPORT... The chair of the Kimberley Process (KP) Ahmed Bin Sulayem met Robert Mugabe to understand the Zimbabwe president’s views on the organization and the country’s future in the diamond industry.

Bin Sulayem’s visit to Zimbabwe was part of a tour of African states. He also visited the diamond fields of Chiadzwa in the country’s Marange mining region.

Zimbabwe was readmitted to the KP in 2011, after being suspended in 2009.

“We wanted to experience how the rough diamond industry of Zimbabwe was developing and what challenges it might be facing today,” Bin Sulayem said. “On meeting with President Mugabe, we heard his views about the Kimberley Process and how it was imperative for his country’s diamond industry to continue working closely with the KP, as Zimbabwe looks towards a sustainable future in rough diamond production and export."
