Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the 2016 KP Chair and Executive Chairman of the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre today announced the nomination of Maryam Al Hashemi, the UAE KP Director as the 2017 Chair of the Committee of Participation and Chairmanship (CPC) of the Kimberley Process.
The CPC assists the Chair of the Kimberley Process in handling the admission of new participants and advises if a Participant fails to comply with requirements, which can lead to their removal from the scheme. It also reviews and assesses candidates for the position of Vice-Chair. The Committee's findings are presented at the plenary meeting. The CPC is made up of previous KP Chairs, representatives of the WDC and Civil Society Coalition. The previous year's KP Chair becomes CPC Chair the following year.
After completing her formal education at Dubai Women’s College, Maryam joined DMCC in 2003, making her one of its longest current serving employees. Ascending to her current position, as Director of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, as well as becoming a member of the DMCC leadership team in January 2007, Maryam’s responsibilities specifically cover a wide range of initiatives including planning annual department objectives as well as supporting long-term strategic planning towards operational excellence.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem said: “As someone who understands the necessity of constantly evolving in line with the various sectors and markets to stay ahead of the curve, Maryam is an ideal person to bring forward this important work which involves bringing on board new participants and observers to continue the excellent goals of the Kimberley Process.”
Maryam Al Hashemi commented: “The fact that we continuously evolve to stay relevant in an exceedingly fast paced and multifaceted environment is one of the most exciting parts of my job and I am looking forward to bring the same spirit to the Kimberley Process during 2017 in this important year that KP will review its processes and bring forward change.”
