The diamond industry will take centre stage as experts tackle key issues facing today’s marketplace at an online conference hosted by Jewellery News Asia (JNA) on November 30 at 4pm (www.en.habergold.com).

Jean-Marc Lieberherr, chief commercial officer – Diamonds at Rio Tinto Diamonds, and Rajesh Lakhani, vice president of Kiran Gems Pvt Ltd will lead the panel of experts at the JNA Online Conference, which is sponsored by the Israel Diamond Institute and Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt Ltd.

Themed "A new era in the diamond industry,” the experts will share valuable insights on how companies are finding innovative ways of navigating the many uncertainties facing their business, and how these companies are turning challenges into opportunities. The experts will also discuss how the shift in global economic power has moved the demand for precious stones eastwards, particularly to China and India.

Tackling mine-to-market issues, the online conference will shed light on various concerns including lack of major deposit discoveries, declining rough supplies, investment, global distribution, marketing and retail.

The panel of experts will delve into the underlying factors and drivers behind the changes in the industry and answer questions such as: What lies ahead and how best should companies prepare for the changes in the industry? What measures should companies take to thrive in today’s challenging, albeit, exciting business environment? What areas present excellent investment opportunities?

Panel of experts
Discussions in the JNA Online Conference will be led by Lieberherr of Rio Tinto Diamonds and Lakhani of Kiran Gems.
