Written by on

A recent increase in licensed companies within the diamond industry has doubled employment numbers in just a year within the industry.

Speaking at the official opening of HB Antwerp Botswana’s diamond cutting and polishing factory in Gaborone yesterday, President Mokgweetsi Masisi said as it stands there are over 4 000 employees up from 2 000 last year.

Masisi said currently there are 50 licensed companies, 48 of which are operating, with many licensed recently.
