In a festive ceremony yesterday (February 14), the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) officially opened the new International Tender Center. The International Tender Center is being established by IDE to consolidate under one roof as many polished and rough tenders as possible. It is housed in a specially designed state of the art facility within the IDE complex, affording optimal convenience and security.

Speaking at the ceremony, IDE President Yoram Dvash said: “The new International Tender Center is an important initiative. Our diamantaires participate in diamond tenders abroad, which naturally incurs costs. Starting today, the new center allows bourse members to enjoy direct access to leading international diamond suppliers while saving on travel, accommodation and insurance costs. This morning, we received some happy news from Okavango saying they’ll be holding rough tenders here, and I’m very glad for that”.

Alrosa President Andrey Zharkov, said: “I’m very happy that Alrosa is participating in the IDWI. We have a fruitful and long-standing relationship with the Israeli bourse. We expect to do much business here, and hold rough and polish tenders in this new center. Congratulations to you all for this new facility”.

At the end of the ceremony, the ribbon was cut by Dvash, Zharkov and IDI Chairman Shmuel Schnitzer. Deputy Minister of Finance Yitzhak Cohen affixed the mezuzah on the entrance to the new International Trade Center.
