The executive-secretary of the organisation, Edgar de Carvalho, gave that information, adding that this stand has been satisfactorily respected by the members and he believes that the current situation will be overcame soon, due to the positive tendency in the market.
"In the framework of the crisis we recommend to the member countries to rationalise the expenses, as well as to establish a thoughtful balance between the production and the price in the international market", he said.
He reminded that the Angolan government has passed measures for the diamond sector to keep it secure in the current moment of the crisis, adding that in a first scenery the government should make a direct intervention in the purchase, creating stocks to avoid failure in projects.
Other initiative is to work with some governments to have an intervention in order to minimise the costs of production.
