De Beers ‘undervaluing Namibian diamonds’

Namdia’s first annual report, which is expected to be tabled in Parliament this year, is expected to reveal that it has been selling its 15 percent allocation of diamonds produced by Namdeb Holdings for over and above De Beers selling book price.
Alrosa diamond mining company’s management and some diplomats from diamond producing countries met in Moscow, Russia, in 2007 to discuss prospects of cooperation. The meeting was attended by representatives of Angola, Belgium, Zimbabwe, Canada, Congo, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Japan.
