Cohen acknowledged former president Prager “for successfully helping the association and its members to navigate through difficult times and difficult issues in the past two years”.

He added: “I look forward to the new challenges ahead. I appreciate the hard work that others have done before me in the association and I hope to be able to build on that to move LDB in a direction that benefits the diamond industry.”
