ALROSA will increase rough supplies to Armenian enterprises by 25-30%

24 february 2012

In 2012, Russian diamond miner ALROSA will increase rough supplies to Armenian companies by 25-30 percent, Gagik Abrahamyan, Honorary President of the International Armenian Jewelers’ Association, told the Armenian News-NEWS.am after his meeting with ALROSA's President Fyodor Andreev.
During the meeting, the parties agreed to increase the volume of partnership. “It was also noted that Armenia’s enterprises considerably reduced imports in the fourth quarter of 2011, even though they could have maintained the previous level,” ALROSA’s press service told the Armenian News-NEWS.am.   
And Gagik Abrahamyan noted: “Imports did drop considerably due to the sharp decline in demand for rough stock observed in the international market. However, Fyodor Andreev knows the capabilities of the Armenian companies very well. That is why the President of ALROSA assessed the situation as a partner, and consequently, an agreement was reached whereby ALROSA will increase rough supplies by 25-30 percent in 2012.”
According to the data provided by the Armenian Ministry of Economy, throughout 2011 Armenian companies acquired a total of $43 million worth of rough diamonds from the Russian supplier.
