THE KP ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM HAS TO BE DEALT WITH
By Ernie Blom, WFDB President
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) Intersessional Meeting in Mumbai completed its half yearly meeting three weeks ago. It gave us some time to reflect on why the KPCS agenda is moving so slowly.
Undoubtedly, the KPCS is one of the great accomplishments of the worldwide diamond community of the last two decades. Since the WFDB-IDMA Congress in Antwerp in the year 2000, enormous steps have been made to create a safer, conflict-free diamond trade.
