The United Arab Emirates’ representative at the Kimberley Process (KP), Maryam Al Hashemi, has been appointed to chair the KP’s Committee on Participation and Chairmanship for this year, the UAE recently reported.

The committee – which consists of representatives from past KP chair countries, as well as from the World Diamond Council and Civil Society Coalition – is generally headed by the country that chaired the KP the previous year. Its role is to work with the new chair – Australia, in this case – to assess the admission of new participants and the removal of members that don’t comply with the scheme’s standards.

Al Hashemi has worked for the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) since 2003.
