安特卫普世界钻石中心[1]CEO阿瑞•爱普(Ari Epstein)诗丹表示,近年来安特卫普(Antwerp World Diamond Center)对中国钻石出口量[2]迅速增长,预计到2016年中国将超过美国(USA)成为安特卫普最大的钻石[3]出口市场,中国可能成为世界最大钻石消费国[4]。

据爱普诗丹介绍,随着中国经济的发展,中国对钻石的需求量[5]也在迅速增长,越来越多的中国人把钻石作为结婚信物[6]和投资品[7]。2011年安特卫普出口中国的钻石有约占四分之一,出口金额[8]约为50亿美元。

爱普诗丹表示,安特卫普世界钻石中心日前刚刚发布了新的战略发展计划[9]。考虑到中国市场的重要地位,安特卫普世界钻石中心计划在中国设立安特卫普抛光钻石[10]销售中心[11],并依托中国这个平台覆盖亚洲市场(Asian market)。在钻石金融领域[12],安特卫普将进一步深化与中国工商银行(Industrial and Commercial Bank of China)的合作。 

CEO of the Antwerp World Diamond Center (AWDC), Ari Epstein, said that rates of AWDC 's diamond export to China are growing rapidly. It is estimated that by 2016 China will pass USA as the biggest importer of diamonds from AWDC and might become the world's biggest diamond consumer.

Ari Epstein explained that along with the progress of Chinese economy, China's market demand for diamonds is growing drastically. More and more Chinese make diamonds a token of marriage or an investment item. In 2011, approximately 1/4 of AWDC diamond export was directed to China, in a sum of $5 billion.

AWDC world diamond center has recently published a new strategic development plan. Considering the significant position of China in the global market, AWDC plans to establish a new a polished-diamonds selling center in China and to use this platform in order to cover the Asian market. Concerning the diamond financial domain, AWDC will go a step further in deepening its cooperation with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.
