This stance was expressed last Wednesday, in Luanda, by the C.E.O of the state-owned National Diamonds Company (Endiama), António Carlos Sumbula, during the swearing-in ceremony of the new boards of Endiama and the also public Diamonds Trade Firm (Sodiam).  

“We’ll continue to organise the diamonds co-operatives, in co-ordination with the provincial governments of those provinces, aiming at the reduction of poverty indexes in the country”, Mr Sumbula explained.

Beatriz Jacinto António de Sousa is Sodiam’s new C.E.O.
