Botswana President to Visit Diamond Conference

Botswana President Ian Khama will be among the honored
guests at the International Diamond Manufacturers Association’s 2011
President Meeting, which will be held in the Botswana capital of Gaborone
April 4–7.

The core event of the meeting will be on April 4, with the
Botswana hosts staging a diamond industry “Stakeholders Roundtable,”
and panel discussion.

“We’re honored
to be hosted by the Botswana government and the Botswana Diamond Manufacturers
Association,” said IDMA president Moti Ganz. “Botswana is a prime example of
how the diamond mining industry has contributed positively to the development
of the economy and social structure of a previously disadvantaged country.”

Meeting participants will also have the opportunity to visit
the rough diamond sorting facilities and offices of the Diamond Trading Company
of Botswana, as well as tour the country’s famous Jwaneng mine.
