Press Release: The Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), a Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC) platform and a leading diamond center, hosted a delegation of senior executives from De Beers, the world’s leading diamond company in Dubai, on Sunday September 14, 2014. The meeting was held at Almas Tower where both parties took the opportunity to discuss future collaborations, the increasing role the producing nations play along the New Silk Route and the opportunities this shift is bringing.

The delegation was hosted by Peter Meeus, the chairman of the DDE, and Gautam Sashittal, the CEO of DMCC; who welcomed De Beers representatives Paul Rowley, the executive vice president of global sightholders sales; Nigel Simson, the senior vice president of global sightholder sales; Brent Eiseb, the vice president of eastern hemisphere global sightholder sales; Chris Donegan, the vice president of western hemisphere global sightholder sales, and Vijay Chetty, a key account manager for global sightholder sales.

Today, the DMCC Free Zone and Almas Tower (DMCC’s headquarters and tallest business tower in the Middle East) has grown to become synonymous with the place to be for the international diamond trade and home to over 600 diamond businesses.

From buyers to sellers to service providers -- everything the industry require in terms of infrastructure and a marketplace is available under one roof in a secure environment at Almas Tower including the DDE, vaulting, boiling, polishing, certification and transport services and the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme.
