Botswana now boasts diamond production, cutting and polishing, jewellery manufacturing and finally rough diamond trade.
The bourse will provide a platform for producers, brokers, valuers and traders, with new tenants having already taken up residence in the building, adding to the diamond industry chain.
This will make Botswana a vibrant market for diamonds. It is expected that government will market its allocation of Debswana production through the new bourse.
The DTP is a private initiative funded by Safdico, a Diamond Trading Company.
