WDM Press release - The Executive Committee of the World Diamond Mark Foundation (WDM) met in Hong Kong on occasion of the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gems Fair. WDM Chairman and CEO Alex Popov noted that the Hong Kong fair was an excellent opportunity to gather the attending board members and report on the WDM's activities and progress. "We presented the revamped WDM B2B website, reported on progress made in bulking up the WDM Authorised Diamond Dealers membership with additional, carefully selected retail jewelers in Asia and Europe, and urged the attending members to do more to make the WDM a household term among the members of the 30 bourses of the WFDB. We must gather more support from and involvement by our own constituents on whose behalf we are working," Popov said. He added the WDM would be approaching each and every bourse to achieve this.
