ALROSA is in talks to increase the share of direct sales to customers in Southeast Asia

03 june 2016
(FINMARKET.RU) - ALROSA is holding negotiations to increase the share of direct sales of rough diamonds to clients in Southeast Asia, according to what was told to reporters by Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.
He said that this possibility was discussed with customers by Andrey Zharkov, President of ALROSA during a recent trip to Hong Kong. "He asked if they were interested in buying not along the curve through Europe, but directly. The more direct relationship, the more transparency, the better," the deputy prime minister said.
Currently, ALROSA sells about 5% of its production to China. Chow Tai Fook, the largest jewelry retailer is a long-term customer of the Russian diamond miner and Luk Fook buys ALROSA’s rough on the spot market.
"We produce diamonds in Yakutia, sell them through Antwerp and then they go to South-East Asia. Such a strange knight's move. It is clear that if the chain is so long and if prices are determined by the mediator, there are always doubts about how much transparent and correct this system is. So now we are starting to work on the creation of an online platform. It will provide selling price indicators for goods sold directly," Yury Trutnev said.
