The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre pledged $25,000 to CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, for its growing range of corporate social responsibility initiatives, in line with the educational component of the United Nations Millennium Development Program.
The gift was made during the working visit of CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri to Dubai in preparation of the 2008 CIBJO Congress, which will be hosted by the DMCC at the Grosvenor House hotel in Dubai, April 14-16.
“An associate member since its inception, the DMCC has been a staunch supporter of CIBJO and its mission, and this gift is yet another sign of its unwavering support and trust in our organization,” Cavalieri said. “As CIBJO’s activities in the realm of consumer confidence, social and corporate responsibility, and education are expanding continuously, so are our expenditures. While we run a very tight ship, we do need more funds to finance our work.”
The dedicated Web site for the 2008 CIBJO Congress can be accessed through the CIBJO Web site. Delegates and interested parties can view the preliminary congress program, register, book their hotel, and find useful travel information on the site.
