The Antwerp Diamond Bourse (Beurs voor Diamanthandel) has made just one change in its 2019 composition of its Board of Directors, adding Mr. Bhavesh Morakhia as a new director. Jacques Korn remains President, David Gotlib remains the Bourse's Vice President, while Rajender Gehani and Raphael Rubin have been reelected as Executive Directors. Members of the board are elected for a four-year period. The Bourse fosters the interests of the Antwerp diamond industry, provides a range of services and includes a multi-level dispute resolution system managed by the Board of Directors in conjunction with the Federation of Belgian Diamond Bourses, according to its rules and regulations. These form part of the broader dispute resolution procedures under the umbrella of the Federation of Belgian Diamond Bourses.
