This is just one of the reasons why we are delighted to sign the agreement with the Guangzhou Diamond Exchange, and we look forward to potential this brings,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, DMCC and Chairman, Dubai Diamond Exchange. “This agreement will also advance the strong and longstanding cultural and commercial ties that exist between the UAE and China, and extend our support to both the Dubai Silk Road strategy and One Belt One Road Initiative,” he added.

DMCC has successfully built a world-class ecosystem for the diamond trade in Dubai, which includes the Dubai Diamond Exchange, the world’s largest tender facility.

The signing of this MoU emphasises DMCC’s leading role in continuing to grow the diamond trade through the emirate.
 
China is one of DMCC’s key target markets and its business district already enjoys strong relationships with several Chinese entities. Last year, DMCC signed a similar agreement with the China Gems and Jade Exchange (CGJE) to connect buyers and sellers of gemstones and jade from the two countries.
