The 31st WORLD DIAMOND CONGRESS will be held in New York from Oct. 17-20, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. This is the annual forum of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, which established the World Diamond Council that works with 35 governments, the European Union and the United Nations to "rid the industry of the scourge of conflict diamonds."
