Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in the World Diamond Conference

11 december 2014

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in the World Diamond Conference on Thursday. The conference gave an opportunity to the diamond market players to discuss the ways how to increase consumer demand for and consumer confidence in diamonds. The  conference brought together an impressive array of diamond industry leaders, including ALROSA, De Beers, Rio Tinto, the World Diamond Council, the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and the world's major jewelry retailers.
ALROSA’s sales policy is based on long-term contracts. The company is currently compiling a list of customers for the new contract period of 2015-2017. At the conference, ALROSA signed long-term agreements with 12 companies from India, including diamond and jewelry manufacturers. ALROSA will increase direct supplies of rough to long-term customers from India compared to 2014.
India is the world's largest diamond manufacturing hub importing more than 70% of the world’s rough diamond output for cutting. Indian companies are successfully cooperating with ALROSA both under long-term agreements, as well using tender and one-time sales. In 2014, ALROSA’s overall rough supplies to companies with Indian capital participation exceeded $ 2.3 billion, of which direct supplies to India reached about $ 700 million.
ALROSA pays great attention to cooperation not only with its clients, but also with industry organizations. Last spring, ALROSA and the Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) of India signed a memorandum of understanding stipulating the exchange of information about the diamond market, cooperation on issues related to the Kimberley Process and synthetic diamonds.
