Vladivostok, City of Diamonds: The Start of Gem-Cutting
6 September 2017
10:30

The Russian Far East is a global leader in rough diamond production. The region contains 81% of the diamond deposits present in the Asia-Pacific region. However, nearly every rough diamond mined is exported and cut in another country. In 2016, the Eurasian Diamond Centre was opened in Vladivostok to provide infrastructure for launching new gem-cutting and jewellery manufacturing facilities. 2017 saw the launch of the first investment projects in diamond production and jewellery manufacturing. Alrosa has announced the start of a programme to provide financial assistance to diamond cutters. What are the factors that determine the global competitiveness of a location for attracting investment in diamond-cutting? How can the Russian Far East succeed in competing for investors in this sector? How will the programme of financial support for diamond cutters operate? What impact could eliminating duties and other financial restrictions have on Russian diamond-cutting enterprises and their investors? Could Russian diamonds as an international brand provide a competitive advantage for Russian diamond cutters?
