Building on the valuable symposium keynote, the Future of Trade report made a number of important recommendations aimed at driving the evolution of the sector and shaping the next phase of growth:

Prioritize product innovation: Investing in research is essential to reduce production costs and drive innovation in diamond and jewelry design, while harnessing the potential of LGDs in high-tech applications.
Rethink supply chains: By moving to demand-driven supply chains, LGD companies can optimize operations, reduce inventory costs, and accelerate the transformation of raw materials into finished products.
