Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of DMCC commented: "DMCC has worked hard over the last 10 years to build Dubai into the regional leader in commodities trade and provider of a unique commodity-focused ecosystem. To have been asked to represent Western Asia on behalf of CIBJO to the UN is a proud moment for me and a direct result of our efforts in the international precious stones and metals sector. Going forward, we look to further increase our global engagement by working with industry participants and governments on best practice standards, and supporting initiatives that enhance sustainable economic and social development in the international jewellery trade."

CIBJO's cooperation with the UN demonstrates the commitment of key jewellery industry players to join a coalition with key governments, in tackling the common development challenges that matter to the future of the business community and civil society at large.
