The New York Diamond Dealers Club (DDC) president, Reuven Kaufman, announced that for the first time a delegation of some of the Club’s prominent members will exhibit in a special DDC Pavilion at the Hong Kong International Diamond Show.
Kaufman indicated that participation in the prestigious show, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, was part of an overall commitment by DDC to open new markets for its members by encouraging them to pursue trade throughout the world. Participation in the Hong Kong Show, which as a trading hub for our industry plays a crucial role in the diamond business, is the latest manifestation of this initiative and follows DDC organized trade delegations in such venues as Dubai and Israel as well as one scheduled for Basel in a few weeks.
Kaufman said that Club members were unanimously enthusiastic about the DDC opening new trade opportunities for them. He also noted that DDC leadership was involved in planning for new trade initiatives in other countries as well as working on a multi-bourse diamond week that would be convened at the DDC within the year.
Kaufman encouraged attendees at the Hong Kong Show to visit the DDC Pavilion in Hall 9 at the airport. He expressed confidence that “visitors to the DDC Pavilion will be impressed at the unusually wide range of goods available to them at extremely competitive prices.”
