DMCC eyes Zimbabwe diamonds

27 november 2012

The Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC) executive chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said his organisation is interested in mining diamonds in Zimbabwe’s Marange.
Sulayem was quoted by local media as saying that negations were already underway with the Zimbabwean officials.
“The DMCC is a coalition of several members and quite a number have indicated that they want to invest in Zimbabwe’s diamond sector,” he said.
“Talks are still at an early stage, but these investors are some of the richest people in the mining sector.
“We are also willing to assist Zimbabwe in their trade of diamonds. That is why we are holding regular talks with the Zimbabwe authorities.”
 ZMDC chairman Godwills Masimirembwa also confirmed that the negotiations had already opened.
“We are indeed holding negotiations with the investors from the Emirates although negotiations are still at an early stage,” he said.
Other foreign companies from China, South Africa and Lebanon were mining diamonds in Marange in partnership with ZMDC.
