The Antwerp World Diamond Centre has signed a memorandum of
understanding with the largest bank in China, ICBC.
This agreement enables the pre-financing of diamond
transactions via ICBC. In addition, this will also strongly support the Antwerp
diamond trade’s expansion into China’s diamond industry.
On October 24, AWDC will embark on a first-ever 10-day
roadshow through China. China’s most notable jewelers will meet with the
Antwerp diamond trade in five different cities, with the support of ICBC and
the Chinese government.
