“Dubai continues to strengthen the status of one of the most important centers of the global diamond trade. On average, we have four auctions a year in this country, and we always see high interest from the diamond market participants. All the auctions that we have held here since the beginning of 2018 ended with a good premium, our total revenue was about $40 million,” Evgeny Agureev, the Member of the Executive committee, Director of the USO ALROSA, said.

Alrosa and Dubai have long-standing partnership.
