Martin Rapaport’s Presentation at the Mines to Market Conference was divisive, belligerent & inaccurate at best

21 march 2017

(Diamond World News Service) - The Day 2 of the Mines to Market Conference came to an end with Rapaport’s offensive and demeaning presentation - “State of Diamond Industry”. He began by saying how greatly India is dependent on the US and how much it needs America more than anything else. His presentation and manner of speaking was extremely demeaning, aggressive and insulting to Indians. “Indian industries are suckers, they manipulate profits,” he said. He also mentioned that the net rough exports in the UAE are only because of India. He continued to his vindictive presentation by accusing Indian businessmen of malpractices. He insinuated that Indians support illegal activities which are eventually funding terrorism and that President Trump will not stand for such things. It was very evident that Rapaport was acting as an agent for Trump to fix policies between India and America.
