India has opened what has been called the world's largest diamond trading centre this week in Mumbai. Eighty-five per cent of all the rough diamonds in the world pass through India for cutting and polishing and Indian gems and jewellery exports have grown 18 per cent to $29bn in 2010.
Now the country hopes the centre with state-of-the-art infrastructure will help to further compete with other exchange hubs like Antwerp and Tel Aviv.
