In the run-up to the local elections on October 14 2018, the AWDC is organizing an election debate on Thursday, September 6. This special debate, covering a wide variety of relevant issues and diamond-related topics, takes place at 4 pm in the Antwerpsche Diamantkring.

During the debate, five important Antwerp politicians will engage in a discussion moderated by journalist Indra Dewitte:

  • Wouter Van Besien - Groen
  • Ludo Van Campenhout – NVA
  • Philippe De Backer – Open Vld
  • Jinnih Beels – Sp.a

They will be asked to discuss five statements and questions concerning local, national and international issues related to the diamond industry:

  • The Antwerp diamond square mile needs a makeover
  • The gold and jewelry shops around the station give the diamond square mile a bad reputation
  • Is the city of Antwerp making enough efforts to promote Antwerp as the most important diamond trading center worldwide?
  • Access to Belgian banks is essential for a Belgian industry
