Angola mulls free market for the country’s diamonds

03 april 2009

Angola’s Geology and Mines Ministry is preparing to open a free diamond market to revive its diamond sales, which face a major decline as a result of the global economic recession.
The Society of Commercialisation of Angolan Diamonds, which is the main partner of the government in marketing diamonds coming from this South African country, will spearhead the process.
Angola, which is regarded as the world’s fifth top producer of rough diamonds, recently announced that it would buy diamonds from miners in the country to sustain their operations as the weak diamond market rages on.
Meanwhile, the country’s Minister of Mines and Geology Makenda Ambroise said Angola will avoid staff shedding in the diamond industry as had been the case in such countries as Botswana, Namibia and South Africa due to recession.
